  • What is wrong with today's mainstream media and are the media living up to their responsibility?What changes do we need to make to media, and what alternative media sources are available?What are some of the stories and underlying values that you might find on alternative media?Why does one publisher, who profiles people who make a difference, continue to publish while he loses money?

"The mass media tend to focus on how we look, who we date, how much money we have...is that really all we are? Of course not."

--Jon Wilson, publisher of Hope magazine

Saturated by sensationalism? Attacked by tabloids? There are alternatives. In this half-hour of Humankind, host David Freudberg takes a tour of media with meaning and the difference that in-depth, honest, and journalism-from-the-heart-makes. Profiling two of the biggest movers and shakers in the field of life-giving media, Michael Toms and Jon Wilson, Humankind presents a different choice for those who may think they have none.
