Today is Positive Media Day.
We all talk about all the downsides of the media. And don’t get me wrong- there certainly are plenty to talk about!
But today we are going to talk about the good media. And yes, there is a lot of that too.
Think about all the events we have witnessed together with people all of over the world because of media. Think the moon landing, baby Jessica, Live Aid, and countless moments in sports that we’ll never forget.
Think about stories that brought end to corruption. Think about stories that showed light on advances in medical or other sciences that improve the lives of millions now.
Think about the local stories that touch your heart.
Think about weather alerts that save countless lives.
There’s still a lot of good in media. We just have to remind ourselves of that sometimes.
