The great majority of what American’s (people living in the United States) know about the World comes from the media. Are we getting the real view? I think not.
We get some news of what’s happening in the world, but as with most media coverage today, the stories are paper-thin. There is no depth… no attempt to understand why things are happening. We apply our own standards to what we see without looking deeper. Partly because that’s what most of the media does.
