We Don’t Know Jack About the World – Alisa Miller TED Talk

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

Alisa Miller, President and CEO of Public Radio International, enlightens us on how little U.S. news coverage there is on the rest of the world. How does she do this? She uses maps of course. Miller uses visualization to tell a (short) story. She shows us all the coverage on Iraq and the lack of coverage on all other countries, which is practically nothing.

The name of this type of morphed map escapes me right now. Maybe someone can remind me?

[Thanks, Jodi]
