By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Tuesday, Doug talks to Brooke Gladstone, host of NPR's "On the Media." She's just written a new book. It's graphic nonfiction - a journey through two millennia of journalism. Gladstone says that there's always been a fear that the media are somehow controlling our minds. But rather than being an external force, Gladstone argues that the media are mirrors that show us our own reflection. Doug talks to her about "The Influencing Machine," and about what we can do to be savvy media consumers.
