Get rid of all-in-one analyst guy and give people something worth watching. TV is a medium for the people!
There is a long way ahead before we can say we have a democratic, sensitive media.
Community media needs humanity. State of the art technology is excellent, training is a must, but a good heart is a precondition to good journalism.
Looking for golden rules drives a society into ideas of utopia and utopias are never human. The common good cannot be predefined, because the common man acts most, thinks least.
The commercial media's presumptions make them least qualified for the job. The very term community media means it is not someone else's.
Mainstream media has a penchant for melodrama. Anchors with urban backgrounds cannot understand the issues or needs of flood survivors. Community media is key in this crisis.
