HMM. I agree with the basic thesis of this book (that the media is manipulating us) while also noting the way Glassner chose to manipulate the reader (don't be afraid of X, be afraid of Y!! PS: Y is guns). It's not a bad book, but I think maybe if I had read it when it first came out I would have been more into it. As is, I felt like I already knew a lot of these points.
