The Morning News
The Morning News attempts to convey the sense of anxiety that an unsure economy and world state contribute to a calculated exposure to information which leaves the average cultural consumer with a sense that things are out of balance. This is not a show explicitly about the economic crisis; it is about the state of the society when communication is king, when the news at the top of the hour creates an ambience for your daily life, allowing for a quotidian dose of negativity. More than ever, and at an increasingly fast pace, we are exposed to information from a variety of reliable, partisan and objective sources. We can seek out as much or as little as we want; but by the turning on the radio, computer, or television, we are instantly under the influence and effects of current events and how the lens of the media transforms them.
