Canada, America's hat.
and i say that as a proud canadian, only becuase it's true.
people must realize that 90% of tv programing in Canada comes the the US. the only media we have (im on the west coast by the way) is a few
local/provincal news stations and CBC, the national station. And ofcoarse newspapers... they all report on pointless things, really. And they will go
in the direction america goes.. left/right... but its all pointless banter anyways..
to find out whats actually going on, you need to go online, talk to people, and read books/magazines.
and its very regulated, i remember reading in the book "the truth about canada" that 70% of the media in vancouver is now owned by the same company or
something? i donno.. read that book though, you canadians!
Edit: re-read your post, and i like your final line : "society is becoming a reflection of the media"
i believe that to be true, and if it is, we're doomed
