To be truthful, I still read a daily newspaper, but now I'm much more sceptical about what I'm reading, and more inclined to go and try to find out more by using other sources to back up what is being said. The author backs up his arguments well, by showing us the difference between what happened and what the media said happened. And as for PR companies - you'll want to take them all out and shoot them for what they're doing!
This is an easy read which requires no specialist knowledge to understand. And once you've read it you'll never see newspapers, TV and radio in the same light again.
