How the media create irrational fear–an interview with Jon Entine

I blogged recently about Jon Entine and his book “Scared to Death: How Chemophobia Threatens Public Health.” Following that I had the opportunity to interview Jon via skype and record it. I’m presenting that interview to you in the hopes that it will aid understanding of how today’s media’s need to attract audiences can be harmful. Not just to reputations, as we talk about here frequently, but even to our health.

This is one more of a continuing series of video interviews with interesting thought leaders and crisis communication experts. I encourage you to add your name to the email list at agincourt.us as I will be sending out notices when valuable new training and education tools like this become available.
