Incarcerations and the Media

This episode features a presentation made by Spencer Graves to the April 1, 2017, meeting of the NAACP of Johnson County, KS. Graves said that the incarceration rate in the US today is five times what it was in the mid 1970s. The change, he claimed, was driven by changes in the editorial policies of the mainstream commercial broadcasters to focus on the police blotter. The public got the impression that crime was out of control, when there had been no substantive change in crime. Politicians responded to this change in perception, and many people of color have been victimized by this change. Graves claims we can fix this and many similar problems if 3.5 percent of the US population stops watching mainstream commercial broadcasters and supports instead noncommercial investigative journalism with transparent funding that puts everything they produce on the web in the public domain.
