One disturbing way the media manipulates us so easily

I saw this just 5 minutes ago on Twitter.

On the surface, it seems innocuous enough– an article by the Washington Post about how is banning “propaganda ads” against climate change.

But look closer at the bottom of the tweet and you see it’s a Twitter ad, applying the “dollar a day” approach to influence you, my friend.

This article has nothing to do climate change, conspiracy theories– or any polarizing issue, for that matter.

The future of e-publishing

The threats and possibilities of a digital book market
