We can’t stop constantly checking it on our computer screens, but what is this doing to our minds?</p><p>We are never really taught how to make sense of the torrent of news we face every day, writes Alain de Botton (author of the best-selling The Architecture of Happiness), but this has a huge impact on our sense of what matters and of how we should lead our lives. In his new book, de Botton takes twenty-five archetypal news stories—including an airplane crash, a murder, a celebrity interview and a political scandal—and submits them to unusually intense analysis with a view to helping us navigate our news-soaked age.</p><p> Tue, 08 Apr 2014 15:12:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 87613 at http://wamc.org "The News: A User's Manual" By Alain De Botton Tanglewood - Kevin Moran, Managing Editor of The Berkshire Eagle http://wamc.org/post/tanglewood-kevin-moran-managing-editor-berkshire-eagle <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Kevin Moran is the Managing Editor of <a href="http://www.berkshireeagle.com">The Berkshire Eagle</a>.&nbsp;</p><p>He joins us to talk about what's making the pages of the paper during the region's very busy - and culturally rich - summer.</p><p> Wed, 03 Jul 2013 13:10:00 +0000 Alan Chartock & Joe Donahue 68430 at http://wamc.org Tanglewood - Kevin Moran, Managing Editor of The Berkshire Eagle 3/19/13 - Panel http://wamc.org/post/31913-panel <p></p><p>Today's panelists are: Alan Chartock, George Hearst - Vice President, Associate Publisher, and General Manager of the Times Union, Rex Smith is Editor of the Times Union, and Mike Spain - TU’s Associate Editor.</p><p>They join us to discuss the TU's new press and the state of print journalism.
