Media and the "Illusion of Choice"
Check out this info graphic from Frugal Dad about who owns our media. Remember that media is a pervasive force that helps shape the way we view reality. The average teen consumes 10 hours and 45 minutes of media a day (pdf). The fact that so few companies are in control of this media means that we're not really getting diverse messages. How can we ensure that the media we consume demonstrates multiple viewpoints? How can we avoid falling into a media tunnel?
