Our 24/7 media cycle is dominated by opinionated news pundits and an onslaught of celebrity or person-of-the-moment headlines. Do we create a false reality from false information? How do our reactions impact our lives – personally and collectively – from politics to war to the economy to our planet’s very survival? Not afraid to challenge media spin with their own brand of truth-telling, Peter and Norman share their wisdom on how to best navigate through all the noise.  In Part I of this two-part conversation, you’ll hear:

  • how headlines are shaped by the media, government, and corporations
     
  • the ways we are influenced by “dis-info-tainment”
     
  • what Madison Avenue dramatics are used to sell wars
     
  • inside stories that may challenge your opinions
     
  • reliable sources you can reference for accurate reporting
