I think every parent should read this book because we live in a country where we are bombarded with media everywhere we turn I think I was naive about how powerful the media is and how greedy these megacorporations are Money is always the bottom line, not quality programming The author gives several recommendations for parents that I think are helpful Like watching programs together with your kids and discussing what they are trying to tell us Everything is wrapped up in consumerism, so we need [...]

Written by CEO and founder of Common Sense Media read for work purposes The focus is on holding media companies accountable for the influence of their products on children It considers the First Amendment a bogus excuse the media industry uses to evade responsibility It lauds efforts to rate, label, and restrict access from the likes of Tipper Gore, the MPAA, and even the Hays Office back in the 1920s Full of misleading anecdotes about links between kids behavior and violent video games, movies, [...]

This book has a forward from Chelsea Clinton, talking about her experiences with media It really confirmed my decision to not allow my almost 2 daughter to watch television at all He talks about how most kids spend time interacting with media each day than they do with their parents I thought that was shocking and appalling The book inspired me to really be conscious of the media I expose my daughter to.

This is a great book that argues that our society needs to improve media options for children because they spend so much time with it While I agree that children s programming is lacking, the author seems to forget that we all have the option of turning it off.

I loved this book It dragged just a little at times, but overall this had some fantastic insights, research and facts on the media and how we re affected by it, in particular children.

Only a handful of companies control all of the media Most of it is CRAP The mindless masses eat it up because its EASY.

I learned a lot about the FCC, government, the media and how they wok and don t work together That part was great reading, but he goes on and on and the book could have been about 50 pages shorter.
