I was watching a video on TED.com about how "women should represent women in media". At the end of the talk, the speaker Megan Kamerick showed this video to represent how we as consumers and absorbers of media, should see the whole picture of something and not just one perspective.
Perspective can often make or break a message. As New Yorkers, we have a tendency to glance at media images, covers of newspapers or magazines, and make our own assumptions based on that glance. Do you think the world would be better off if every single consumer gained a highly educated literacy for media and avoided manipulation? Is it beneficial that some people are easily manipulated by media producers?
