    1 thought on “Evil Media”

    1. This is a pretty interesting take on media, capitalism, and individual agency, considered mainly in terms of contemporary political economy but also placed within a longer history of mediation and society. I read it in a media theory seminar this summer and generally find Goffey and Fuller's take to be pretty compelling. In all honesty I didn't finish the entire thing (too much other reading!) but will definitely return to it later when I have the time.
