Summary: Radio and television bombard people with information every day. Each person must sort through and assimilate all of the information into ideals, beliefs, and truths of their own. But how does a person do this? How much influence do the words and ideas of other people have on individuals forming their own opinions? This program examines the conditioning of information in our society and its impact upon forming public attitudes, the role of the media in polling, and the significance of the public's voice in shaping individual opinions. Among those featured on this program are various talk radio hosts and participants at the 1995 National Radio Talk Shows of America Convention.
