People Powered Media
During the People's Summit a Panel of people in the media I love and trust encouraged everyday people who have a passion for accurate, professional, and unbiased exchange of information to take up the fight for free speech.
This is important to me because of the structural and ethical issues within the media, journalism, and news sectors. In addition to this, and multiple polls have found that 40-60% of Americans do not trust the news to be reported accurately and fairly. This distrust is warranted as 90% of all media is owned by 6 companies that commingle,co-own, and even share staff. Reporters from different networks even share working space as the newsrooms have been laying off staff exponentially for decades. This has led to numerous mistakes reported to the public as fact as well as lack of diversity in stories, opinions, and perspectives.
