2021 questions (2/365)

Has the media influenced your view on the world?

Of course it has. I can imagine very few circumstances under which the answer to this would be "no"? A more interesting version of the question would be "How do you think the media has influenced your view on the world?" Also it is peculiar to treat "the media" as some kind of monolithic entity. I think it's commonly recognised that it most certainly isn't, especially when social media is included. I still consume a large volume of traditional journalism, and deliberately restrict my exposure to the giants of social media, but I suspect this makes me an exception rather than the rule. That scares me a little.
