Project Censored – 12.10.19

As the world faces unprecedented challenges like global warming, what role are media and journalism playing?
Kenn Burrows and Amber Yang say that social media and conventional journalism foster a sense of isolation and powerlessness
that undermines peoples’ ability to take action. But they suggest an innovative new approach to journalism —
“constructive journalism” — can be a valuable tool for reviving community and cooperation. 
Notes:
Kenn Burrows is founder and director of the Holistic Health Center at San Francisco State University.
Amber Yang is a SFSU graduate in psychology, and a frequent contributor to Project Censored.
