How do people deal with the torrent of information pouring down on us all? What sources can't they live without? We regularly reach out to prominent figures in media, entertainment, politics, the arts, and the literary world to hear their answers. This is drawn from an email exchange with veteran television producer and executive David Nevins, currently the president of entertainment at Showtime.
First thing I look at in the morning is my email on my iPhone which includes a digest of clippings on the L.A. mayoral election and Jason Hirschhorn’s Media REDEFined newsletter, a curated digest of interesting articles on media, tech, and pop culture. Then I check my Twitter feed — some sports, some politics and news, and a lot of people who write about television.
