Social Media at a Glance Is a fabulous tool and is Praised as being available to all we the citizens of the earth can Come into the social Media Arena and engage in Open debate with our fellow Man or so It is said, However in all of the Platforms we have there is still The obstacle of Moderation within The Media Outlets serving us That are No different Than the Media which Come before them. Msn, Msnbc, fox, CBS,ABC,CNN, Differ In no way, from The Social Media community.
The reason For this is That Here in this Internet world where we are connected by WiFi, And various other Internet connections, the Simplest Of People can access Media as easily as the most complex. However Those with Apposing views to that Of the Main stream View Are most often Moderated Into Nonexistence.
Speaking from Personal Experience, Main Stream Publications That Offer Platforms for open Debate on a wide range Of subject’s Such As The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times,The Huffington Post, The Boston Globe and others. Have often when Presenting an apposing view to articles written on the subject Of Homelessness and The Homeless service Industry, Reject any criticism of Main stream Thought So One has to ask themselves Is Social Media For All, Or at least I often Ask that Myself.
I Come to Believe Myself That There Is No Ethics In Journalism Be It Main stream Media Or Social Media. Because No Matter The Mannerism Or Eloquence Of speech Or Respect One Might Have In responding to Any Post If It Is diverse From that Of the Author Or publication It will Be moderated Into Oblivion. This Is Not Open Debate This Is Censorship At It’s Finest.
That is Why The Blog Has become a tool For The Voice of diversity. People don’t want to Be moderated in their Views everyone on this planet wants to be heard. If You don’t Believe That. Why Has This Happened?
Why Because People Truly Want Open Discourse as A whole And were not getting it!
And We Are as a society Rapidly Losing our reasoning skills Because of It.
