Alisa Miller : The Bad News About The News

Please watch this.

Alisa Miller, head of Public Radio International, talks about why — though we want to know more about the world than ever — the US news media is actually showing less. Eye-opening stats and graphs. (Recorded March 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 4:29.)

Great video, especially when paired with Ethan Zuckerman’s (of Global Voices - yes, they have a Tumblr) more recent TED Talk, “Listening to Global Voices” 

  

A few years old, but as relevant as ever — likely even more so…

I think I was around 22 when I discarded egocentrism and realized that the world does not revolve around me. How old is the US, in relative comparison?
