Without a functioning journalism the diseases which ravage our society go unnoticed by the consensus necessary to effect change.
The bastions of old media are often not journalists, but rather whores to the dictates of other cultural phenomena like bills and greed. We need more than this, and as such I have lost neither my interest not commitment to watching and participating in the new media.
To that end I'm going to focus a bit on how to organize information in the creation of journalism or the means by which one is journalistic. Some important though mundane aspects of this prospective include:
- creating, organizing, editing and using physical media to convey "facts"
- determining effective best practices for sharing information
- journalism is not a popularity contest. other than the dictates of individual needs and will it should be about conveying the facts to as many relevant or interested beings as possible
- what is a speculation or a fact; to what extent are arbitrary cultural paradigms useful in contextualizing social circumstances, and when does such reliance degrade the clarity of facts
This curative aspect of journalism is also important for the proper life of news because otherwise the community is left without chronological context important in mature consideration of social phenomena.
More to be said, this is not a revolution, or a reset. This continues.
