The Evil Media

Today’s post will be brief but it poses a question that has puzzled me for a long time.

Politicians, entertainers, religious leaders, law enforcement, anti-law enforcement groups, teachers, anti-teacher groups-the list could go on and on-often harp on the issue of the evil, biased, and blatantly unfair “media.”

My question? If the people behind this “media” are indeed misleading the public, why is there such a crush to get their attention?

I admit that truly professional journalism has suffered a major hit under the sheer numbers of competitors in the information dispensing business, a business that has evolved into dispensing entertainment. However, maybe the answer to the evil media complaint is as simple as making sure each of us is well-informed, which by definition means obtaining our information from a variety of sources and viewpoints.
