Retweet Sideshow Zooms.
Lindsay Tanner`s book,
Sideshow: Dumbing Down of Democracy.
The book`s central thesis is that the media and politicians are locked into a dumbed-down, trivial, vicious circle, that is for the most part instigated by dumb, lazy journalism, and dumb media organisation that encourage such journalism and coverage of politics. So well argued and accurate is Tanner`s thesis that I think this may actually be the first time a book`s thesis has been completely proven correct before the book has even been officially launched.
Blogger Grogsgamut shreds Samantha Maiden`s bullshit book reviews by actually reading the book.
