Lara Setrakian/Syria Deeply:
Trust in the media has hit an all-time low; we’re inundated with sensationalist stories, and consistent, high-quality reporting is scarce. She shares three ways we can fix the news and make the complex issues of our time easier to understand.
- Deep reporting/deep domain knowledge
- Journalistic Hippocratic Oath – ‘Do No Harm’
- Embrace complexity…not simplicity. It is a complex world.
[Most importantly, profits and corporate ownership need to be eliminated from journalism and broadcast media. Our country needs to reinstate a true Fourth Estate, the backbone of democracy, i.e., more grassroots media organizations who deep report, take the oath, and embrace complexity.]
