We explore how the news influences us and our culture.  The way we receive our news has changed dramatically in the last few decades. Listen in as we talk about:

What is the News?

News is shared on local and national TV stations, newspapers, and the internet.

The News Media affects our culture in the following ways:

  • Journalism has changed significantly in the past few years and has grown more biased.
  • Entertainment is often passed off as news.
  • News is presented to appeal to a wide audience.
  • News organizations are supported by advertisers.
  • News is giving people what market research says people want rather than news people need to know.

Call to Action

  • Turn off the news. Don’t read the news online or in newspaper. Notice how you feel.
  • Seek out more objective news sources.
  • Seek to be educated as well as informed about issues.
  • Don’t let your young kids watch the news. Discuss issues with older children.
