Fighting Isolated News Media

Cara’s Blueprint worked to raise awareness of the problem of isolated news media, which constantly presents a supposedly “objective” and non-radical approach to news reporting on social justice issues. Some structures, practices, and policies that institutionalize this problem include unfair and dishonest campaign finance/endorsement of political candidates by corporations or wealthy individuals (resulting in a conflict of interest and the hindering of independence in decision making) and the monopoly of the media by those with vested interests motivated by financial ends.
