Hikari Banshoya Posted about 4 years ago Ethan Zuckerman: Listening to global voices Dear Will I find your comparison of Zuckerman's project to the white missionaries' attempt to bring god to heathens very interesting. However, on the other hand I believe it's not the case; what Zuckerman is implying here is that, although we tend to believe that w're getting a broad view of our world through our media, the reality is that we're not; our perspective is strongly biased and very narrow. The problem lies in this misunderstanding, because overestimating the broadness of our outlook is dangerous. It causes lack of understanding which leads to discrimination. Therefore, I don't agree with your idea that he is trying to help YOU through his project; he isn't trying to help certain minor communities. He is trying to take away the unnoticed bias we see in our media, for the sake of all humankind.
