I just finished reading [The Information Diet](https://www.amazon.com/Information-Diet-Case-Conscious-Comsumption/dp/1491933399), and I was left a little confused and disappointed. I felt like it was marketed as a book for the average person looking to be more mindful about their information/media consumption, however, it was more about challenging people to look at both sides of the US political spectrum and to get more involved in local politics.

So, with that, any suggestions for books along the lines of being more intentional about the information/media we consume? It's a difficult thing to do in this day and age, but as I'm now a parent, I want to learn to be better at this, and model this for more children as well.
