The Influencing Machine: How The Media Shape Our View of Politics, with Brooke Gladstone
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
You’re invited to join the Suffolk University Media Law Group and the Rappaport Center at Suffolk University Law School to a conversation with Brooke Gladstone on how media drive society’s view on politics.
During times of national importance, such as political elections, answering this question becomes increasingly taboo. Ms. Gladstone, current managing editor and co-host of NPR show On the Media, will share her inside view of media’s machinations.
In her latest book, The Influencing Machine, her cartoon figure conducts readers on a fascinating tour of media history, debunking with wit and savvy the notion that "the media" is an external force beyond our control.
Friendly debate on this topic and the ethics, morals and laws that have grown around political expression are expected. Come hungry for intellectual food for thought and a reception to follow!
