Social Media could be utilised to a greater degree to counter the bias we are seeing in Mainstream News Media (MNM). I am thinking of a one-stop shop, a digital newsroom where the news is analysed, torn apart, reviewed and rewritten in a BALANCED way. A video room for viewing relevant stuff. Workshops for citizen journalists. The usual links to resources.
There are many websites that present excellent articles. This diversity is good, but these websites can be hard to find. I’m thinking more of ONE PLACE where the main news items can be examined in detail. It can also be a place where overlooked or inadequately covered items are discussed.
That’s my idea, but don’t be limited by my thinking (as I am, lol). Think about how a one-stop shop could counter MSM bias and BE ATTRACTIVE and ACCESSIBLE to people seeking a decent news coverage. Mobile phone viewing and downloading might be neccessary (out of my field I’m afraid), Twitter and Facebook sites probably mandatory.
