We will meet at the Brickroom in Ashland for a lively dialogue on how the media is covering real stories and what we can do to improve this.
There are important new trends in news right now and how we process news and information is one of them. Our current culture hammers us with breaking news headlines every day. As a result, people become angry, cynical and less informed.
Breaking news tells you about the sensational exceptions to the rule, so we rarely are able to understand the rule. We will try to flip that model and focus on the foundational rather than the sensational. That way we can focus on collaborating and understanding the underlying forces that shape our community and our world
