Overview

On average, many of us spend more than 70 minutes per day consuming news. That�s double the amount of time we spend caring for loved ones. How is it that we know so little about something that is such a big part of our lives? Alisa Miller, CEO of Public Radio International and media and technology leader, urges us to be aware and take control of the news if we want a more accurate picture of the world. "Media Makeover" is an entertaining and informative bird�s eye view of how �news� is made, what is missing from our news diets, why certain types of content are harder to come by, the implications for our society, and perhaps most importantly, what can be done about it. "Media Makeover" is a must-read for anyone who wants to be better informed and to take action: consumers, innovators, technologists, journalists, and media leaders alike.

"Media Makeover" is part of the TED Books series. Each book is a powerful idea, well expressed, that can be read in a single sitting.
