The average American spends around 12 hours a day scrolling, listening to, watching, or reading various forms of media. The consumption of this media subconsciously shapes our biases, prejudices, and worldview. Increasingly, our news has become more polarized, shaping an American culture which understands multiple versions of the truth - guiding us to think, interact, and engage very differently. Seattle witnessed this first-hand when national media descended on the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP/CHAZ) and painted a picture that was often very different from what businesses and community members on the ground were experiencing.
During this episode of Keeping It Real, The Fight Against Fake News, we'll crack the surface of this complex and troubling media landscape, how these practices can reinforce racism and xenophobia, and how we can confront our own biases when it comes to the media we consume.
