The changes in media have had a huge impact on our society and our politics.
Our guest on the podcast is chief New York Times television critic James Poniewozik. The Monroe, Michigan-born author has a new book out, “Audience of One: Donald Trump, Television, and the Fracturing of America.”
So if you haven’t figured out by now, I’m a total media geek. Over the last two decades, I’ve seen upfront the power that media has, for better or for worse.
I’m fascinated by the decisions made, the incentives all the players have, and the impact that media has to change a community – whether it’s a city like Detroit, the nation, or the world.
This book caught my eye because it’s kind of a look behind the curtain involving our media landscape and our current president, who became nationally known by using the power of television and the media.
So since James — a University of Michigan grad — is coming through town this month as part of the Fall Metro Detroit Book & Author Luncheon this October 21, 2019 at Burton Manor in Livonia, I thought it’d be a good time to talk with him.
