Sustainable Society:  A society that balances the environment, other life forms, and human interactions over an indefinite time period.








“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and ever will be . . . The People cannot be safe without information. When the press is free, and every man is able to read, all is safe.”
  -Thomas Jefferson

The function of the media is to inform; to enable society to make wise decisions.

Media with clearly articulated points of view is a good thing. Concerns are raised when a public forum such as newspapers, magazines, and radio have unstated journalistic bias interfering with objectively reporting issues.

Because real and apparent bias in environmental reporting is a concern requiring increasing discussion, this website section explores the media and its treatment
or lack thereof, of integrated "web of life" and fundamental environmental subjects. The emphasis is on media reporting of population, the environment, and sustainability issues.

If the visitor knows of an article, essay, or book review discussing bias or a documented example of journalistic bias, please send to MFS. Thank you!
