On Us

Mark Scott

Stop. Listen. Step outside the echo chamber.

Stop. Listen. Step outside the echo chamber.
How do we step outside our own echo chamber to understand others? What are we losing when we share fewer and fewer national moments? The new media is enabling despots and disempowering democracy. So when every opinion seems to matter equally, On Us offers a few more on choice in a concentrated media world and asks why more information often means less insight.

A true public servant and deep thinker combines his vast knowledge and love for the media and education to ask hard questions. Read scrupulously from beginning to end”
