In the LSE Review of Books Niall Flynn reviews Heidegger and the Media by David Gunkel and Paul A. Taylor.
For Heidegger, truth is the basic question for philosophy. We are philosophically preconditioned to equate truth with correctness, and since Plato, representation is seen as their equivalent. This has significant ideological consequences: "it is in the very guise of being so explicit that the media manages to conceal its true impact". Heidegger refutes this seemingly self-evident position.
