World Economic Forum

WEFIn today’s hypercompetitive, 24-hour news cycle, the media’s primary job is too often to find a villain rather than doing analysis and finding an explanation.

It does nothing to help transparency, and in fact may make things worse by urging companies to become more opaque to avoid media scrutiny. It also fuels bad regulation; they act as information intermediaries between regulators and the public they serve.

And, not surprisingly, the heightened sensationalism created by the media in turn fuels continued mistrust.
