Surfing The Ocean Of Media: Signals & Noise
It's not just that we have so many media choices today, but we can spend our time on channels and services that never challenge our view of the world.
We examine the media landscape monthly, in a segment we call Signals & Noise.
Our team changes temporarily this month: regular Chris Lucas from the Southern Oregon University Communication faculty joins us, and Humboldt State University Journalism faculty member Jessie Cretser-Hartenstein sits in for Journalism Chair Victoria Sama.
It's not all about politics in the media (though we could spend hours on that). Join us for a discussion that can include topics as disparate as virtual reality cinema and the best Jane Austen books.
The "Pick Three" for this month got reduced by time to single media picks:
CHRIS recommends Questlove's cinematic directorial debut, "Summer of Soul."
JESSIE heads for the bookshelf, recommending The Inheritance Cycle of four books by Christopher Paolini.
CHRIS also provide a bonus link to a piece about government regulation and management of media markets.
