From Nova Science:
Legacy journalists have lacked psychological and empirical training, which resulted in their erosion and collapse in the eyes of the public; however, this book is the remedy for independent and emerging journalists who seek psychological training to offset hoaxes, propaganda, lies, and manipulations. What are the best practices for investigative journalists to deal with abusive sources? How does a journalist inform the public in superior ways which continue to elude traditional reporters? How does a journalist use analytical, emotional, and primal literacy along with biology to become a genuine news producer? This ground-breaking book weaves experimental and evolutionary psychology to give a new generation of independent journalists the tools they need to combat lies, manipulation, fear, and compliance while simultaneously focusing on the reporter’s own emotional and psychological well-being.
