Why not use crowd sourcing to build consensus on world problems through journalism? I call it consensus-building journalism in my articles
My idea is to merge mediation and journalism using a five stage interactive model. Journalists would work with mediators to get compelling stories representing various points of view on the topic and brain-storming solutions to major national and international problems instead of focusing on the conflict and disagreements. If this sounds interesting, check out my article "Consensus-building Journalism: An Immodest Proposal" on Nieman Reports and "What Mediation Looks Like for Journalists". Is anyone interested in trying this?
