How does the media choose the stories they produce?

Is it just the facts? Or do they pick and choose which stories will get the most reaction?

If you rely on the news to get your information on what is going on in the world, then you are letting others decide what you need to know.

James admits that he does not listen or read the news.

Today, he reveals what sources and knowledge skills are necessary for interpreting the news and deciding what is important and what is just media hype.

Plus, he reveals what you should be doing with your time instead and provides some alternative ways to familiarize yourself with current events.

And in today's Second Segment, Claudia and James talk about what not to do if you come into sudden wealth.
