Fixing a broken news industry.

    February 17, 2017

    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.

    1. Deep reporting/deep domain knowledge
    2. Journalistic Hippocratic Oath – ‘Do No Harm’
    3. 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.]
