Episode Summary

EDIT
Investment in Media, News, and Information
AIRED:
Amadou Mahtar Ba delivered the opening presentation to the Salzburg Global Seminar's Strengthening Indpendent Media Initiative's October 2009 meeting on Governance, Media, and Development, entitled "Aligning Strategies to Maximize Results". The presentation was entitled, "Investment in Media, News, and Information A Pillar in Building Strong Democracies, Economies, and Societies". Mr. Ba states "...if the lungs are essential to the health of the body, it is the oxygen which they process which is the key to life. The media is the oxygen of the body politic when we talk of good governance, accountability and democracy. You can have all the vital organs: heart, brain, and liver but without oxygen the body shuts down and dies. Similarly democracy needs elections, parliament, separation of powers, a vibrant civil society and a private sector. But without the media, democracy in modern societies and economies just cannot work."moreless
