It struck me the other day, that despite all the job loses that are taking place we seem to still have the same “bad actors” in all the same places that created and enabled our financial/political/social messes. So I wondered, if I could replace a whole group or industry of people, who would I replace? And where would I start?
My nomination list had many worthy members, but in the end I picked Main Stream Media.
As George Washington points out:
“Promote then as an object of primary importance, Institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.”
— George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
And as we have all seen, the Media tells stories THEY want to tell, to people they don’t respect.
So if I could start a hiring revolution and bring in a whole industry’s worth of new journalists and media people, this would be my ad.
