One of those is how a person’s personal experience increasingly is trumping faith and/or reason. This is a vital factor for us in media to understand for two reasons. One, it’ll help us move away from the black and white nature of the deception of objectivity, and, two, it’ll help us make programs that are more relevant to viewers — especially those who are younger.
