by Benjamin Frymer,Tony Kashani

Lost in Media examines collectively the ethical issues that have arisen in media-driven everyday life and will that arise as paradigm shifts occur on a global scale. Films, television and the new media often serve the globalization aims of a capitalist society as they function to socially reproduce the hegemonic norms, values, and styles of the larger society. Chapters in the book use the tradition of critical theory to look at issues of free market fundamentalism, journalism’s erosion of communication of truth, public relations ethics of perception management; yielding self-censorship in the media, entertainment media pedagogically cultivating consumerism and docility, music and morality, misrepresentation of resistance movements, ethics of spectatorship, and the transformation of everyday ethics.

greed style
This book truly raised my consciousness regarding the subterranean political and religious messages rampant below the surface of popular movies.
the book is just as I expected. It was a little expensive,. but since my daughter-in-law wrote one of the chapters, I needed to buy it.
This book is a timely contribution to a field that requires much study. I especially appreciated the chapter on social media ethics by Kashani, and the chapter on religious movies by Radek. The preface by David Ingram gives the reader a great opening to the discourse the volume creates. I highly recommend this book; worth every penny!

A great find!
