If you don’t trust the media, do it yourself

Headline borrowed from a News.com article and the associated write up prompted me to write a post on my perspective of media and the relationship and goals of what we are doing over at PodcasterNews.com. To my knowledge what we have built over their and are continuing to add content producers every day is all about citizen media and the evolution in news reporting.

We don’t go on the philosophy that all media cannot be trusted but we do believe that much of the media coverage is driven by agendas of the specific network. The content producers are podcaster news network need only have an opinion and we will do our best to have a balanced offering of commentary.

Will this always be possible, in a sense we are at the mercy of those content creators that want to dedicate time to creating short format shows for the network. I have been focusing some of the recruiting efforts in areas where we need people but needless to say we want to add as many shows as possible on the widest variety of news, politics, business, sports, lifestyles etc that we can.

But getting back to the crux of this headline, I think if we continue to focus on the content and not get hung up on the politics of being a new news organization we will attract the eyes, ears and repeat listeners and subscribers of content on the network. [News.com]
