Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well researched book that every person in the US should read. It helps to explain how newspapers, radio, and TV have contributed to the hostile political climate that now exists in the United States. It highlights the problem with media owned and/or controlled by groups that are more interested in propaganda than unbiased reporting.

This book is a must read for everyone, not just journalists or scholars or policy wonks. Beautifully written, engaging, incredibly researched, but most of all, heartfelt, Maria Armoudian's Kill the Messenger tells the vital stories of the impact of media on our perceptions of the world, and how we are either motivated to act in the face of injustice, or, because of the media's impact on us, we decide turn our eyes away. I cannot recommend it enough.

Format: Hardcover
I read this book cover to cover. It is Very well written and extremely well documented. As an educator, I feel very strongly that any third or fourth year college student, especially in History or Political Science, should have this book as a required reading. It will open their eyes to world affairs that are not normally shared.

This book is a powerful contribution to the people who read it and to the body of work that it encompasses.
