Synopsis

Special designed to help children and teens distinguish between the positive and negative images that they see in all forms of media, to understand the real-world consequences of actions that may seem inconsequential on screen and to recognize forms of manipulation. Sixteen-year-old correspondent Amanda Thieroff interviews Katie Couric, Matt Lauer and Ann Curry of "Today" about their roles in covering the events of September 11. Two dozen middle-school students talk about how they use various forms of media and how those sources affect their perception of such topics as violence, sex, consumerism and self-image. Also examines the "media literacy" programs in Salinas, California, and Silver Spring, Maryland.
