Democracy or Corporatocracy?

Media has a dual role of not only protecting the public from a corrupt government, but also in shaping our perspectives.  Making informed decisions depends upon receiving balanced, fact-based news.  As such, the agenda of the Media must be kept under a microscope.  If Media serves only the interests of government and corporations, where is that democratic watchdog, i.e., the Media?  It’s fair to say, once faith in the Press is shattered, faith in democracy shatters too.   And, while everyone knows major Media is driven largely by profits, there will always remain a need for principled journalism—patently.  If Media no longer serves the interest of the People, the unspeakable implication is —we don’t really live in a democratic society.   All the more reason to promote and support independent, investigative journalists.
