58. Audience of One: Television, Donald Trump, and the Fracturing of America by James Poniewozik

New York Times television critic James Poniewozik examines the evolution of television and mass media as well as Donald Trump’s history and his own obsession with television. He looks at how the combination of the two was one of the many reasons that Donald Trump got elected president. I very much believe that his ability to take advantage of the current television landscape is one of the major factors in how he got elected and watching how things continue to play out I very much worry that his ability to know how to use television and media to manipulate us is going to get him another 4 years. I give it a 7 out of 10.
