I ENJOY ALL YOUR SEGMENTS AND LEARN ALOT ABOUT THE MEDIA AND OUR WORLD THROUGH THEM.

YOUR SEGMENT ON THE EXPERIAN SECURITY BREACH LEFT ME ANXIOUS FOR AN EXPANSION ON ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS " HOW DOES THE CONSUMER KEEP HIS/HER INFORMATION MORE SECURE? "AND "WHAT TO DO NOW THAT OUR INFORMATION HAS BEEN SOLD BY EXPERIAN?"

I MAY NOT HAVE FULLY HEARD YOUR ANSWERS IF YOU DID ANSWER THOSE TWO QUESTIONS. I WOULD SUGGEST MORE INFORMATION BE GIVEN ON THESE TWO AREAS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROGRAM.
