Public interest media is vital. However, there is a crisis in public interest journalism and it is not new, but some believe the pandemic may be an extinction event for this discipline. Global media power and wealth have become concentrated into a handful of tech giants. This concentration of power and its’ inherent biases not only poses a threat to public interest journalism but also to global health through medical misinformation. This dystopian concept is rapidly becoming reality and perhaps the only way to overcome this is through connection…. Connecting with those that think differently and challenge our beliefs. If we stay in the echo chamber of our polarised media we will not overcome this problem and it will become the end-game. We must get out of the echo chambers of our polarised media. We must get over our affronts and offences in order to listen. We must lean into these voices and realise that we all have something to learn.
