Solo artist Mike Daisey on Rob Ford and framing the story | Q with Jian Ghomeshi | CBC Radio

Today I had one of those famous “driveway moments” with this piece.  If you’re short on time, I recommend starting it at minute nine, where Daisey discusses media and storytelling, in part:

…as a media literate society, everyone should understand in their bones…that every single story is crafted by people who are telling you the story…  A remarkable number of people in our culture don’t think about that in a deep way, because it’s a lot harder to get through life if you’re constantly thinking about the frame of things, but if you do think about the frame of things, it’s really the only ethical way to try to get through life and have a sense of the forces at play.
