Staying in the Know
It's easy to have too much or too little - isn't it? Try staying in the know without spending too much time or effort. Not easy. Most of us don't like what the media is doing. But we still need to know. What we may do is resort to the easy (but harmful) way out. What I mean is to give up and not try to go after the info we need or we may rest easy with one key outlook (and only one perspective). It is especially tempting, when that outlet insists it has the truth. Look up the phrase, "media literacy," sometime. It gets at the investment in focus and effort at being savvy with regards to our news and our media usage. There is always a risk to learning.
