Mr. Gitlin discusses his book Media Unlimited: How the Torrent of Images and Sounds Overwhelms Our Lives. His book outlines the media-saturated society we live in, from video games and billboards, to waiting room televisions and elevator music. Gitlin provides that, because of an unending stream of manufactured images and sounds, the media fosters a society that is inclined to distraction and inattention. During this event, Gitlin covers all aspects of the American media and then takes questions from the audience. close
