A wired story reports that during her presentation at the Personal Democracy Forum in New York City on Monday morning, Arianna Huffington charged traditional media outlets with failing their readership miserably by hiding behind a fake curtain of neutrality, when the facts often stack up more heavily in favor of one “truth” over another. She also said that trolls often ruin the discussion at The Huffington Post, and she appealed to the audience for help with any tech geniuses who could restore civility to the community without having to hire an armada of moderators. Yea, this is all “old news” but real problems remain, how can we encourage more citizens to read widely, encourage publications to seek “the truth” over constantly presenting two sides as equal when they are not, and how can people participate in civilized dialog while filtering out the trouble makers without excluding important voices of dissent? It’s quite a challenge that journalists like Arianna Huffington face. In the end, the news should have a point of view. Good investigative journalism and documentaries have a point of view. Being informed and thoughtful should be a goal, not neutrality.
