Media Responsibility

As I live and Breathe: Just when you think the media has become so Objective in their reporting that somehow they think they can stand outside of our environment and simply report on the decline of our environment, you read a story like this.

Major Kudos for News 8/FOX Rochester. The movement is growing. The pubic and even the media is realizing that we cannot stand aside while that which keeps us alive, our environment, is in serious jeopardy - just check out some of these Rochester Environmental Issues. Hopefully, more and more mainstream media will recognize their innate responsibility as our informers, who have been protected with a special privilege under the US Bill of Rights, to inform us on the state of our environment—so that we may have the information we need to make informed choices about that which matters most.

For, as Dr. Sagan said, "Anything else you're interested in is not going to happen if you can't breathe the air and drink the water. Don't sit this one out. Do something. You are by accident of fate alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet." Check this story out: News 8/FOX Rochester kicks off Go Green project "Going "green" seems to be the hot phrase these days. Many people are spreading the word about protecting the planet by being environmentally friendly. We think it's a good message.Over the course of the next year we're going to bring you stories about the simple things we can all do to make a difference. These days it seems everything is tinged green. Schools are being built to specific environmental standards. Weddings are being thrown with mother earth in mind."
