Role of the Media

There’s been a lot of “discussion” over the role of the media lately. In my world, it should be responsible for calling out someone in a role of authority who has spouted a non-truth. It should be used to give both sides of a controversial issue without weighing in on a side, in the immortal words of Dragnet’s Joe Friday, “…just the facts ma’am!” That’s the role of media, ensure the public are aware of the facts.
