  • Solution: Don't forget diversity

    "As newspapers struggle to keep their footing and retain their place in our democracy, there has been increasing talk about the need to give the public courses in media literacy. The thinking behind this movement is that if people truly understood the role the news media plays in the public discourse they would understand the danger to democracy if papers vanish.

    The problem with that solution is that it ignores the fact many feel that news organizations routinely paint a stereotypical and one-dimensional picture of their lives. In those cases, many people believe mainstream news organizations detract from rather than add to the public discourse around issues important to their lives.

    For the public to be moved to truly rally to save the media, the media must first fully cover all aspects of our communities."

The Nazis, Fascists and Communists were political parties before they became enemies of liberty and mass murderers.
