Don’t bother getting informed until you know who’s informing you…

I decided to take a timeout from becoming informed, focusing instead on first understanding who it was, exactly, that was doing the informing.

The original purpose of journalism was to keep us informed which, in turn, would allow us to keep elected officials, as well as others, liable for their decisions.

As the media is no longer providing us with the information we need to our government officials accountable, they do whatever they want and we never notice.

The energy being placed by some to defend themselves and their towns against others is arguably better placed by helping the majority of our community become better informed.
