CBS Sunday Mornings recently featured a look back at its history as a medium. It also took a look forward in this age of digital convergence. The video that results, although from an old school media form, is worth watching as a primer on how quickly our sources of information are changing. Can we trust the new media? Only if we learn to seek our multiple sources. And here is the hard part. You need to seek out sources that disagree with what you believe or think. Hard to do, but needed, or we will become an increasingly polarized and frozen society, with hate, misinformation, corporate control and mistrust growing to epidemic proportion.

For information and a study on the subject of "is the media objective", offering ways and reasons to explore all forms of media and all sources, simply e-mail me and I will be glad to pass it your way. I did not write it and it is from a qualified academic or scholarly source.
