The media. The fourth estate. The mass media has come to dominate our mental models of the world over the last 100 years, changing society and even how we view ourselves. What should we be expecting of the media? Are they really serving the human race and civilization well? Or do they serve only the top of our society? We take a look at the role of media in the sensationalism that pervades our culture these days, their role in spree events like the Orlando shootings, and even get a bit political in this episode. Recorded 6/19/2016.
