Jack Myers 3-Minute Podcast: Data vs. Ideas
My mentor, Dr Neil Postman, founder of media ecology and a student of Marshall McLuhan, wrote in 1982 that our reliance on data causes us to stop thinking. We activate thinking through ideas and education. I add to Dr. Postman’s equation workforce diversity. In the next few days and weeks, every time you hear or read the word data, ask yourself ‘what is the idea behind the data?’ How is it adding to your knowledge and the knowledge of your colleagues, clients and stakeholders? You’ll learn my answers and how you can ask the right questions in my new 3-minute ThinkTank, Data vs. Ideas: Is it a Competition? Also listen to my recent 3-minute ThinkTank, Battle for the Soul of Media.
Battle for the Soul of the Media Industry: Jack Myers 3-Minute ThinkTank
In this week’s 3-minute ThinkTank podcast I share a very personal story about the battle for the
soul of the media industry.
The core of media -- the soul of media – always has been and always should be defined by
quality content, truthful and trusted journalism, and service in support of the public interest.
Real media companies set a high standard and should not be forced to lower these standards to
compete with those that have hardly any standards at all.
Listen to my three-minute battle for the soul of our business in which I ask you to take a stand
and not be silent.

Marshall McLuhan’s Strategy to Beat Trump at His Own Media Game
If we've learned anything from Trump's campaign and presidency it's that politics, government, and public discourse have become, first and foremost, show business. The high road — filled with better ideas, serious issues, and relevant priorities — pales by comparison to a powerful and compelling media presence. It's a historical, philosophical, and political mistake to believe that ideas and issues alone will win this election.
