NepalmapThese few days the top news found in traditional media is earthquake & avalanche in Nepal and riot in Baltimore. When you watch news on TV in California where I am (or listen to podcast), you are overwhelmed by the tragedy and the protest which seems to have gone out of control.
NepalI feel that repeated coverage of the same scenes of riot in Baltimore and interviews etc. of the people are getting more and more sensational than before. I have not quite followed SNS as much, but these incidents make me think of the role of media-traditional as well as new.
It helps to keep people informed of the need, for example in Nepal, so that we can take relief actions, but at the same time, the way news and interviews are reported seems to get emotions too high. Where is the balanced view and how we can make the best of the media? I wonder..
