Description
A million listeners trust NPR 's Brooke Gladstone to guide them through the complexities of the modern media. Bursting onto the page in vivid comics by acclaimed artist Josh Neufeld, this brilliant radio personality guides us through two millennia of media history, debunking the notion that The Media is an external force beyond our control and equipping us to be savvy consumers and shapers of the news.

On The Media co-host Brooke Gladstone says the media is not so much a machine, as a mirror that reflects the world back at us. In her comic book, The Influencing Machine, Gladstone traces the history of the media, tackling issues like bias, censorship and sensationalism. More at NPR.org
