Our communication with 'Associated-Press', (AP) USA

Previous messageNext messageBack to messages
Is the subject of media's role in the world dogmatic, unquestionable and un-alterable ?

To: ( Associated Press, pioneer Media institution in the world)


". . . .it can maintain its single-minded focus on news-gathering and its commitment to the highest standards of objective, accurate journalism.
AP’s commitment to independent, comprehensive journalism has deep roots. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and election"
Above text was copy-pasted from your 'about us' portion of web-site. 
We are a non-profit, concentrating on philosophical fundamentals of existing institutions, checking the contrast between their 'possible' and actual goals. We observe that, when Media stand tall as the all defining and all-expressing medium in modern-world, other institutions, traditions, meanings and norms turn largely depended upon them, for CHANGE, RE-DEFINITIONS, and RE-INVENTING. 
Truth and reality are what stand expressed, and the way they stand expressed. So, media being the singular medium in modern world that 'express' her, it define, give color and shape to the world !
Kant was very specific on the two world theory; the phenomenon, and that of NOUMENON. Phenomena, the world of senses, always depended on some or other stand point. So, Media being the exclusive agent of expressing the world, her ‘stand-point’ is extremely relevant to giving color and shape to world ! When she is obsessed with projecting the world 'objectively' a very subjective act as she only have the exclusive freedom to chose what should be expressed as 'objective' news/truth, a lot of 'subjectivity' crops into the act, even without her knowledge or intention.
We realize that what we have touched above  is a very complex theme, and an institution (media) that exists in the world for few centuries, may not be able to re-check and re-contemplate on such base fundamentals at this late stage. But remember, institutions and practices could be termed evil at any stage; take the example of European and US ‘SLAVERY’. 
So, this humble communication  is intended to knock at your supposedly OPEN disposition, to delve upon our dedicated blog-posts on the 'dire need of having a REINVENTED MEDIA' in contemporary world. The links of the said blogs are:
We are a philosophical entity and initiative, so what we have communicated might be odd and not akin to the norms of the day ! But, hope you would call your minds and have a brain-storm session, so that, future of mankind get a REINVENTED media 1
warm regards,
Abraham Joseph 
Ps: November 2015: AP have not even acknowledged our above communication; no media person, or association ever rely or respond to communication from common-man, a clear sign of their lack of minimum social courtesy !
