Journalism: make them care

Media

Adam Davidson wrote this in the context of American politics, but I think it just as easily applies to discussions on online privacy and security, and to every country in the world:

Any reporter who thought it was important to point out that most Americans don’t know $THING are in a different position from the one I’ve been in. Our core job is to report on things people don’t know they should care about. And to make them care.

I even feel that responsibility as a silly guy with a blog.
