Why don't "the people" tell the news? Why do we make media companies responsible for reporting our news?
First you need an educated and unbiased people, dedicating most of their time to researching and doing a good job at communicating basic ideas. Most media may be biased or simple entertainment and have low quality, but bombarding us with more low quality and mediocre media, making it harder to find the critical thinking in high quality media is not a good solution. That's what chit-chatter, gossip, twitter and fb are for. All in all, you can have people spread the message, but for a good analysis, there has to be an effort and preparation.

What skills should future graduates possess ?
Though they may not seem like skills, I'd say trust, medium-term adaptability, all around motivation and effort and a critical eye. Trust, because it is not easy to believe in the value of others when you are competing, and the future must shift towards collaboration. medium term adaptability because the world is shifting constantly but has latency, motivation and effort, sort of together as not everything will be down the lane of what one expects and it has become easy to say if it is not what I want then I do not work hard at it. A critical eye to know how to choose from among all the options. I guess that creativity can help but not necessarily sort all of these.
