SORT BY Relevancy
Statistics are showing that violent crime is actually on the decline, but media reports of killings,robberies, and assaults give the impression that danger is everywhere, and the future looks grim. In fear, hordes of people are rushing to buy firearms and security systems. Who are these nameless, faceless people that we are protecting ourselves from? Is the media selling fear on purpose? Why? The daily stories of killings are certainly for real, and yet, what if there are many more acts of kindness and consideration by strangers that never get reported? Journalist Nate Clay, host of the television talk show "Seven Days Chicago" talks about distortions in the Media and the political and economic incentives for the media to sell fear to the public. Who stands to gain when the public becomes suspicious and hysterical? How can the negative impressions of growing inner city crime be reversed?

The dream of producing a television show, a feature length motion picture, or even a short music video has been made possible for many through the availability of affordable video cameras and editing equipment on laptop computers. But now that we have the ability to produce, how do we reach the audience? Internet radio and television have become the source of information for the new generation, and the business savvy among us have created ways to capitalize on new opportunities. The Urban Information Network is one such enterprise that not only provides an outlet for television and film producers, it has a profit sharing incentive for those who wish to benefit from the growing presence of the Internet as a primary news and program source. Can we collectively build a global media network strong enough to become a dominant source of information and entertainment? Can we make it profitable for those who participate in its development and growth? Tim Moore of IPTV explains his vision of an African American owned media network that can enrich as well as inform, enlighten and entertain
