Audience of One by James Poniewozik delves into the history of television and its role in shaping American society and politics, ultimately leading to the election of Donald J. Trump. Poniewozik interweaves two crucial stories, tracing the evolution of television from the shared monoculture era to today's atomized universe, and a cultural critique of the president. He reveals how Trump became a character that wrote itself and rode the media beast to ultimate power. A penetrating and often hilarious review of the farcical reality show we have all come to live in, Audience of One is a sobering reflection on the intersection of politics and pop culture.
Fascinating book. Thanks for coming on! – source
