Junk Stories or Gourmet Communications, that is indeed the question at 17th and Glenarm today
The mix of media and how we read, listen and view articles, listen to radio, or watch TV or film depends a lot on what region we live in. It is an ever changing process and like a city skyline each major media city has it's stylistic preferences. The architects, the columnists, and the producers reflect the attitudes and the best way to merge media with new technology is to realize how media feeds the local culture and the responsibility journalists (professional or citizen); producers, editors, bloggers and musicians have. The choice is either to build up or tear down and define what news is really news and what might be considered gossip or titillation.
Case in point, the trending stories on examiner.com today include:
Katherine Webb's New Reality Show Involving Swim Suits
Taylor Swift-Single Again
When Celebrities Mess Up-Mug Shots!
Emma Stone Strips Down
Stars Out of the Closet
Is this examiner.com? Or perhaps there was a typo-enquirer.com. Unfortunately a funny thing happened when writing news stories for this web site: items that may be in fact "news worthy" are rejected and Tabloid style articles with the headlines from above- are deemed NEWS!
Media Skyline is where all of the columns on Evangelism; Special Needs Ministry; Media and Culture; Prayer and Community Building will originate from and be syndicated from. The examiner.com will remain one of the digital publications that our editorial and news articles will appear. The standard will come from this Word Press Site beginning now.
