I found parts of it intellectually stimulating and consistent with the work I and our colleagues arr still doing with the newly relaunched Mediachannel.org that tries to encourage this type of discussion online. The fact that I was invited is also a sign of the regard in which Mediachannel is held even within the mainstream media world that sent representatives from CNN, Al Jazeera, Reuters, RT and other media outlets. As is still the case, American mainstream newspapers mostly remain too arrogant and self satisfied to engage in debates with critics.
Media influences all of our lives. We all need to take more time to understand how it works and how we can try to transform it.
