Some Questions We'll Consider ...
Is media contributing to an informed society or merely a repackager of gossip and publicity releases? What can "we the people" do so information that really matters gets to us without massive filtering and spin? How do we regain power over our media and re-gain reliance on its content? What responsibility do we have in obtaining accurate, timely and meaningful news?
