America needs Sesame Street http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/07/01/bob-rubin-wall-street-america-needs-sesame-street/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: CDN_Rebel http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/07/01/bob-rubin-wall-street-america-needs-sesame-street/#comment-389333 Tue, 05 Jul 2011 15:57:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=27490#comment-389333 Lost in all that is the real truth: for-profit media will always carry bias and have a stake in NOT explaining things so people keep tuning in for the latest shred of insight. The only way to create an honest dialogue in the media is through outside channel and non-profit groups… then maybe the issues will get a fair shake, calmer heads will prevail, and opposing viewpoint can meet rather than pass like ships in the night.

PBS does a good job, but its programming is not dedicated to single topics, and its public funding makes it wary to stray too far into major issues. Many news services are Facebook-like sensationalists. Daily Show and Colbert Report analyze in an entertaining way, but are obviously biased. The question though is, who has the time and resources, and hopefully the right incentive to explain to the public the issues in a balanced way?
