A large percentage of the American population no longer trusts mainstream news outlets either on television or in print. A June 2013 Gallup poll indicates nearly 4 out of 5 Americans among younger generations from age 21-64 cannot trust the major news networks, not when the likes of NBC and MSNBC are owned by General Electric, Comcast and possibly Time Warner in this age of super-mergers. Both the circulation and very survival of America’s news print organizations have shriveled or dried up completely.

 

Amongst the nation’s largest cities, few traditional newspapers are still left today. Even the perennial powerhouse dailies like the New York Times, Washington Post and LA Times have gravely suffered, and in an attempt to keep up with the changing times, years ago moved to the internet as their mainstay means of surviving the computer age. Time Magazine and Newsweek similarly have been forced to downsize with Newsweek permanently suspending its print circulation. In recent years’ Time Magazine in print has been reduced in size to a mere skimpy little shadow of what it once was.

 

To a significant portion of Americans, all the mainstream news corporations have been rendered state propaganda and disinformation tools for the US government. Indeed their embedded (alias “in-bed”) news reporting has become a cynical joke amongst the populace. Entertainment fluff and filler space have come to obscure and replace real news and real issues that vitally affect the well being, safety and concerns of the American public. The controlling powers behind mainstream media outlets have made a concerted effort to keep American citizens the last to know especially when it comes to world events and developments.

 

According that that same Gallup poll from last year, this growing distrust that Americans have towards mainstream news is only exceeded by their distrust towards big business, HMO’s and US Congress. Even last month’s Gallup poll shows President Obama’s approval rating dipping to an all time low of just 39% with the majority of Americans now disapproving of his job performance. This negative, across-the-boards view reflects both a generalized discontent and disconnect with today’s status quo power structure. And as a result, a mass exodus of US citizens have switched viewing their world through the known distorted lens of traditional news coverage to that of the world wide web, currently celebrating its quarter century anniversary this week.

Dyman & Associates Projects, Risk Management: What are you willing to pay?

Click here to edit the title

geriunabia's insight:

Winter weather has taken its toll on both sides the US and Canadian border.  One utility that has taken it in the chops from all the ice and snow has been electric companies that provide services to businesses and individuals.  Now this wasn't the only time that there have been electrical outages due to severe weather.  Power outages have become rather routine when severe weather hits.  The question is, "How much mitigation do you want to invest in to reduce the impact of outages?" See it Here… 

http://www.blogymate.com/post.aspx?blogid=4953411&t=Dyman--Associates-Risk-Management-Projects-What-are-you-willing-to-pay

 

The above is the theme from a Toronto Glob editorial, see the ice storm: Why you want the lights to go out, sometimes in the piece they call attention to the fact that you can't mitigate every risk.  The costs to do so would be too high.  Thus, the focus on risk management. 

http://keirthlei.microblr.com/post/18527/Dyman_amp_Associates_Risk_Management_Projects_What_are_you_willing_to_pay

 

"What is risk? It is the odds of suffering a loss in the future. It is a cost. And what about the reduction or elimination of that risk? Also a cost. In deciding whether to pay the price, utilities – and all of us – end up having to weigh three factors: the size of the possible damage, the likelihood of its occurrence, and the price of mitigation." Dyman & Associates Risk Management Projects

Risk management will become a greater part of the discussion as we move forward and the warming climate starts to impact our communities in varying ways.  This will be a good discussion for communities to have.  One way to reduce risk is to disperse it in the entire community (whole community).  If individuals are better prepared than the costs for organizations can be lessened, and costs of single entity preparedness reduced.
