Explores how the media shapes our view of what is happening, transforming television images into our reality. This segment asks what we have learned from the tragedy of the Ethiopian famine.

Examines the Madison Avenue treatment of problems such as domestic hunger and homelessness and the conscious decision by the organizers to avoid the political aspects of the problems.
