Excellent, David. If one could drill down to the essence of the process, 'selling soap' would be the headline. A very long time ago, well before what we know as social media, someone had the sense to establish government sanctioned, but not controlled, media. Thus we had one, albeit imperfect, example of responsible, quality media. Canadians called it CBC/Radio Canada, the Brits, BBC and, in a fashion, the Americans have PBS. There have always been elements, at least in ths country, who wish to hobble public media because they'compete' unfairly with the soap sellers. We must learn to view the conflict through this lens.
