Blog 4: Public Media in Communities

I believe that the availability of public media is essential to a successful and thriving community. Public media distributes important information about culture, crisis communication, city services, and community resources. All of this information is distributed through TV, radio, print media, and the internet, and plays a major part in bringing communities closer together. Without public media, communities would not be as well connected and would not work as a unified system. People would not be warned in time if there was inclement weather or a natural disaster. They would not know where to find information about their communities public leaders or new laws. People would also have a much more difficult time learning about local cultural events and entertainment which can play a large part in shaping a community and its citizens. Without public media, our world would be stuck in the dark age. Therefore, public media is one of the most important aspects of a community and a vital part of its future and growth.

    You state that if there was no public media: “People would not be warned in time if there was inclement weather or a natural disaster. They would not know where to find information about their communities public leaders or new laws.”

    But couldn’t people still get information about weather or disasters or even laws from regular local news on the NBC, CBS, and ABC stations? Do we need public media for this sort of information?

    What is it that public media offers that private media does not?

    Also, breaking up the text in your post will make for a better looking and easier to read post. You might also consider adding an image when appropriate.
