What will our society become?

What we have lost is the sense of obligation to cover the news, even if people are not interested, it is boring, it is costly, it is complex or it is unpopular.

Journalism of the Internet age has become about what people want to believe, not what they should, about being mad at the other guy rather than understanding them, finding what supports what you think rather than what may be true or at least need to be known to move forward.

It has contributed to stalemate in government, both parties, students telling teachers what they can and cannot teach, broadcasters showing only what the majority or mean common denominator want to see and hear instead of that needs to be seen or heard.

What direction will the world go? What world are we leaving our grandkids and great grandkids?

Thoughts?
