Is the Media Dictating the Future?

The media has the power to shape public policy and influence public opinion, and we can do much better.

We need a new paradigm in journalism, one that takes journalists’ mission, their passion, and their responsibility seriously.

If we want to keep our nation safe, we must embrace new media and journalism as a critical, new medium for critical thinking.

We must also make journalism more inclusive, not less.

We should ensure that the best and brightest in journalism are respected, and that our institutions respect the value of diversity in the profession.

This requires us to reevaluate how we use the resources we have at our disposal to ensure that our journalists have a fair and equal shot at doing their jobs.

We can’t be complacent.

It’s the media’s job to tell us the truth, and it’s the responsibility of journalists to make sure that our work is done with the truth.           __________________________ _______ _____ ___________ _____ ______ ____ ________ _____ _ _____ __ _____ | __ _______ __ ____ _ | __ _ ____ __ | __ __ ___ ___ | | _____ ___| _____| | __ ___| |__ _| | |___ |__ ___| __ _ ___ ___|___ ____|___ | ____ | | __ | | ___| _ ________ |_____ | |__ _______ ____ ___|__ __________________|__ | _______ ___| ___|______ _________| |___ ___|_____|_____ | ________|___|___ __ ____________|______ __ __ ___ ___ ___ _______ | ___ ___ | ___ ___ |_____ ___ _____________ __________ ______|______| ________| _______| | ___________________| ______________|______ _ _______ ______ | __ __________ |_____| ____________________|__ __ | _____/____ ________| |_____/___|_____ _____________________ __________|__ ___ ______| _______________________________________________________________ _________ _______________ |______ |___ ________ _|____ ____/____ ___ | __________________________________________________ |___/__ ___/_____ _______________________________| ___________________________|____ ___/__ _______________________________________________ _______/__ ______ ___ ___ ______ |______ ________ ___ ___ __ ___ ____ /_____ ___ ______ ___ ___/____ _ ________________ _____/_ ________ __ ___ ___ _ ___ __ __ ______ _______ /__ ___ _ ____________________________|____ __ ___ _ _ ___/___ ____________ ________ ___ |__ __ ___ | |____ ___ _________________|__ _ _______________________________________|____________/__ _ ___ /__ ______________________________ _______________________ |___ __ ___/ ___ ________ /____ ___ ___ / _______ ___ /____ _ ___ | __ /___ ___ ________________________ ________/___ ___/______ ___ _______ _________ ______/_______ ________________________________ ______________________ ______________________________________ ___________ __ ___ ______ /____ __ _____________________________ ___________________________________ ________________________ __ ___ __ _ _ _ ______ /_____ / ___ ____ ______________ ___ __________________________________ ___/ ____________________________________ ___ / ___ ______ __ ___ /______ _________________________ ___ ___- ___ ___ \__ ________ ______|___ ___ _| _______________________________________________________________________ __________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________/ ___/ ____/_ ___ ______________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________ __ _ _ / ___ / _ ____ ___ ___| ___ _____ ___ __ __ ___\__ ___\_____ __/__/___/____/___ __/___ / ___/ / _____/ ________\_____ ___/ __ __ __ ______ _______\____ ___ _ __ ______ ________________/__ __ _ / __ ________/ ________________ / __________________ ___ ______ _____.__ ___ /_____/ __ _____________________________________/ ______ ________ / _______/ ________________________/______ ___ __ ________________ ___ __________ ________________________________ __ _______ _______ /__ __ __/ ___ _ ____ \__/ ___ _/ ___ /___ ______ ___/ |_____ /_____ _____________________________________________________________________ ————– ________ \__ \__ ____\__ \__ __ /__ \_____ ___ \/ __ \__ / _____ / ________________________________/ ___________/_____/ /___/ _______ | ________________________ / ________ ___ \_____ __ ____\____ / ________________________ ___ / __ / ___\___
