THINK ABOUT IT #2: C Wright Mills

The media provide much information and news about what is happening in the world, but they do not often enable the listener or the viewer truly to connect his daily life with these larger realities.  They do not connect the information they provide on public issues with the troubles felt by the individual.  They do not increase rational insight into tensions, either those in the individual or those of the society which are reflected in the individual.
