Blog 4: Availabilty of Public Media

Having public media is beneficial to a lot of people. In fact 170 million or so they say…

 

I think public media is necessary for a community to be properly informed for the simple fact that so many people use it. Also this question is a little tricky. What does it mean for a community to be properly informed?  Is public radio reaching a major amount of people? I believe it is . They have almost 3 million facebook followers. CNN and Fox News have close to that number as well. So people are listening and watching. Are they being properly informed is a different subject all together. This is a circular argument that will not get resolved. I think the question we need to ask here is is public media effective? And my answer is yes.

    So if you are not sure if public media is properly informing its users, why do you claim that public media is “effective?” What is public media “effective” at?

    Does that fact that a lot of people say they use public media justify the tax dollars support it? Would there be any negative implications if public media ceased to exist?
