The dangerous exploitation of 'balance' in the media, 5 Jun. 2014
A history of the disinformation campaign against the facts regarding smoking and health, the hole in the ozone layer and climate change science. How unfair arguments, lies and deceit have been employed to support big business and governments who don't want to do anything to protect people and the planet. This book is clear and well argued -- but its opponents will not be deterred by the truth. Anyone who wants to understand the way irrational ideas become acceptable should read this book.
