Why don't "the people" tell the news? Why do we make media companies responsible for reporting our news?
After an amazing Live Conversation with Julia Bacha today on encouraging the media to cover nonviolence leaders, I couldn't help wondering why don't people make the news?
Why do we let media companies tell us what the news is, as if we have no idea what's going on in our own backyards? We ARE the news. We make the news what is it, and yet it's not even decided by us. Why is this?
Why do we feel it's the responsibility of media companies to report on us instead of the other way around?
