The Dominant Media Narrative of the Day

“The thing the media is talking about, in heavy rotation.

“The breaking news, the one you’re required to give an opinion on.

“The thing is, if it’s not for you, about you, or something you need to engage in, then who put it on your agenda?

“The media benefits from turning you into their product, once you give them your attention.

“Feel free, but do it because you’ve chosen to.

“Here’s something to consider: the world doesn’t get better when you spend more time engaging with mass media. That’s pretty clear.

“But it does get better when you spend more time doing things that matter. Actions matter.”–Seth Godin

Or, as my friend Susan might say, “Do you have agency? If not, why have you given it space in your head?”
