I've noticed a lot of posts, opinions, blogs, etcetera, portray the media as evil and/or the cause of problems. Now, I wish to know whether or not any of you agree or disagree with the media being evil and to state your reasons why.
It's worth noting that media types and news types are very different. At my job, the editors wish they could have more space and less or no ads, so they could just report everything and give everything appropriate space; they wish they had more reporters to cover more happenings; they universally hate ads and often ask if it's possible to move or alter the ad layouts to accomodate some vital breaking story, only to be laughed out of my department by my C-U-Next-Tuesday of a boss.In a way, the media is like the people. It's not inherently good or inherently bad, but it's how the individuals operate which determines what or who they are. In general I think it's a good thing, but I feel we're reaching a point where despite having the technology to hold conversations between several people from anywhere in the world at once, we've not yet mastered exactly how to control this beast. Freedom of speech and expression make the media open to all who would use it, and so we have to find a way to identify between information, misinformation and disinformation. What we need is a single chain of self-funded, objective news stations which share info between each other and get people the facts of what's important locally and in the world with utmost accuracey.
