Your Kids Are Getting A Million Media Messages Per Day, And Hardly Any That Share Your Values 2/9/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

We live in a media culture that has a million messages a minute broadcasting their version of morality at our finger tips.

From Facebook, to blogs, to television, radio, music, movies, apps, billboards, its all-around us trying to influence and persuade us.

The main target of this massive culture influencing machine are children.

There has never been more media than there is now, nor has there ever been a moment in history where the media can and does have so much influence as the current society we live in, and with each new technology, this influence only grows.

The values the mainstream media culture teaches and promotes are probably not the values you want your kids to have, and I want to let you in on a secret, from a guy that knows the power of the media, from working in it, and getting a Ph.D in mass communication, and that is that unless you teach and tell your kids your values, they’re not gonna hear it anywhere else.

Almost nowhere in the media, except this show and maybe some other outlets share your worldview.

Even media that seems harmless, I can almost guarantee the producers have a political agenda, even behind cartoons.

The only way your kids will make wise media and moral choices is that you have to teach them, because the media won’t.
