In defense of the much-maligned US mainstream media

In recent years the mainstream media in the United States has fallen on bad times. Conservatives bemoan its alleged built-in liberal biases, while progressives and liberals lament its corporate ownership and its heavy reliance on official sources.

‘Corporate media’ has become an epithet. The digital revolution, the immense proliferation and influence of social media and the limitless space of the blogosphere were supposed to be the great equalizers, thus empowering individuals and small entities to provide the alternative media to the stale profit-driven corporate media. The blogosphere, the social media and the iPhone have opened up new vistas of human possibilities, and their liberating aspects, particularly in autocratic societies are undeniable. But this seemingly brave new world is also rife with pitfalls, where sharing of information and facts, go hand in hand with spreading of myths, deceptive stories, fake news, cyber aggression, and the spreading of manufactured realities.
