How can Congressmen do their job if they don’t listen to you?

August 8, 2013 by admin

Let's not beat around the bush: it's your Congressman's job to listen to you. That means he or she should be holding townhall meetings this month during August Recess.

Are your Congressmen holding townhalls? You can find out at the link below. If they're not, you can demand it.

 

FREEDOMWORKS DEMAND A TOWNHALL

Some Congressmen are avoiding their constituents because they aren't doing everything they can to stop ObamaCare. Don't let them hide from you!

Your Representatives and Senators ought to be supporting Senator Mike Lee and Rep. Mark Meadows in their effort to STOP funding for ObamaCare. As an American, you deserve health care freedom and representatives who are willing to fight for it.

So will you ask your Congressmen where they stand? Will you demand to be heard?

Government goes to those who show up. If you don't show up, Obama's Progressive allies will. Don't let the Left out-educate us!

In Liberty,

Journalistic Integrity

June 15, 2013 by admin

PREAMBLE

We at Media for America believe that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The responsibility of the emerging citizen journalist is rapidly replacing the traditional media, primarily because of the frustration by the average citizen about the "fall from grace" of the main stream media. Our goal is encourage that our Citizen Journalists' get back to fundamental principles of journalistic integrity by reporting the truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues.  We are seeking to build a coalition of conscientious citizen journalists from all media and specialties who want to strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist's credibility.

SEEK TRUTH AND REPORT IT!

Citizen Journalists should be honest, fair and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.

Citizen Journalists should:

— Test the accuracy of information from all sources and exercise care to avoid inadvertent error. Deliberate distortion is never permissible.

— Diligently seek out subjects of news stories to give them the opportunity to respond to allegations of wrongdoing.

— Identify sources whenever feasible. The public is entitled to as much information as possible on sources' reliability.

— Always question sources’ motives before promising anonymity. Clarify conditions attached to any promise made in exchange for information. Keep promises.

— Make certain that headlines, news teases and promotional material, photos, video, audio, graphics, sound bites and quotations do not misrepresent. They should not oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.

— Never distort the content of news photos or video. Image enhancement for technical clarity is always permissible. Label montages and photo illustrations.

— Avoid misleading re-enactments or staged news events. If re-enactment is necessary to tell a story, label it.

— Avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information except when traditional open methods will not yield information vital to the public. Use of such methods should be explained as part of the story

— Never plagiarize.

— Tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience boldly, even when it is unpopular to do so.

— Examine their own cultural values and avoid imposing those values on others.

— Avoid stereotyping by race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, geography, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance or social status.

— Support the open exchange of views, even views they find repugnant.

— Give voice to the voiceless; official and unofficial sources of information can be equally valid.

— Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.

— Distinguish news from advertising and shun hybrids that blur the lines between the two.

— Recognize a special obligation to ensure that the public's business is conducted in the open and that government records are open to inspection.
