recommended text?

Laurie suggests I use this text, It Ain’t Necessarily So : How Media Make and Unmake the Scientific Picture of Reality for Intro to Mass Comm next semester. I’m not sure which googled “David Murray” is the author – there’s a musician, a real estate agent, and an oncologist, among others! Looks more like a popular book than an academic text…?
in fact, check out this review by Salon.com. They critique this book as a front by industry – who says books are more trustworthy than traditional news media?
