The News about the News

TED Talks Alisa Miller, head of Public Radio International, talks about why -- though we want to know more about the world than ever -- the US media is actually showing less. Eye-opening stats and graphs.


The U.S. News is remarkably USA-centric, so in the era of globalization and the fragmentation of information, most American TV viewers know less about the world than they did 40 years ago.

Our world is messed up. just because something is cheaper doesnt mean it is better. we should take actions in to our own hands and find out about global issues to increase our own knowledge for our own benefit
