Journalists Must Step Up Coverage of the Assault on Democracy

Media’s pro-democracy coverage needs to reflect just how much trouble we’re in. While there is some movement toward increasing this coverage, it needs to be regular and not occasional.  And it needs to be different. The consolidation of corporate power over what we read, watch, or listen to has as their primary objective to make money and not educate or even relate events that reflect the true nature of things. Will these media outlets put pro-democracy coverage front and center? Or, will democracy die in darkness?
