What if journalism is doing it wrong? What if reporting about the problems, ills and calamities of the world isn't the best way to actually solve them? What if, instead, it makes readers feel powerless and more inclined to ignore those challenges, distrust the world and retreat to their backyards instead of participating in the commons of civil discourse and action?
