About this book

&i;`Trust Us brilliantly exposes the dirtiest public relations campaigns in America for what they are - cynical attempts to undermine our democracy so some creep can sell your kid more cigarrettes, push more Microsoft software on you or melt down the North Pole with global warming pollution.'&o; John Passacantando, Executive Director, Greenpeace US
&i;`This book is a must for everyone attempting to sift through the vast amount of information available in the media and on the net. It reveals how high-priced, international public relations corporations are hired to redefine facts, create confusion, and destroy reputations of accomplished scientists to protect their bottom line. The good news comes at the end of the book when the authors tell how to filter the news to remove the 'bottom-line bias' so exquisitely woven into advertisements and news items by special interests.'&o; Theo Colborn, Senior Program Scientist, World Wildlife Fund, co-author of Our Stolen Future
