Credo che sia un libro per provocare (e per vendere). Il titolo è sicuramente allettante, soprattutto per uno come me che è scettico, in particolare sulla informazione mediatica (ma forse già dal titolo si può capire il senso sensazionalistico spiccato e audace (troppo forse?) dell'opera). E' una raccolta di argomenti apparsi sul sito www.disinfo.com, uno spazio mediatico che cerca di combattere il modello 4° potere dell'informazione e rischia di essere una parodia di se stesso. Si parla dei più svariarti argomenti: dal contributo disinformativo che i media hanno dato all'11 settembre alle medicine alternative. Credo però che in fondo ci si spinge troppo oltre. Ovvero, mi dà l'idea che il libro, da cui sono tratti i contenuti del libro, sia volutamente (o meglio troppo volutamente) alla ricerca dello scandalo e della vergogna nella proposizione delle notizie che ogni giorno leggiamo o ascoltiamo. Un esempio, a mio parere, è dato dal capitolo sul veganesimo. Lo scandalo, in questo caso, arriva dal fatto che si mangia carne... (e illustra le scandalose condizioni in cui sono costretti gli animali a vivere...e a morire...) e il capitolo propone altre vie alternative di alimentazione. D'accordo, siamo colpevoli di essere onnivori (quindi anche mangiatori di carne come tutti i nostri antenati del resto), ma forse oramai ci sentiamo in troppi con il dito puntato per i nostri troppi peccati... Mi aspettavo qualcosa di più originale e meno scontato...del resto il titolo dà adito a molte aspettative...ma durante e dopo la lettura queste aspettative rimangono disattese, o meglio nulla di nuovo nel panorama della critica all'informazione mediatica.… (altro)
