I have just completed a meeting with Mr. Farai Mafinyani, a member of the 1873 Network, www.the1873network.org, who is passionate about improving the quality of the news that we consume.
I share his concern that improving news content holds the promise to building a diverse, inclusive, tolerant, and interdependent society.
We are all concerned about the the output that is churned out daily by formal media practitioners yet all to often we surrender to mediocrity.
We surely can do something about. I am prepared to walk the talk and if you believe you can add value to the initiative, please indicate by saying Y and providing your contact address.
This message is not limited to practicing media practitioners to all who appreciate the problem statement.
