I’m Kitty Reporter. You’ll find posts here about politics, culture, the media, education, music, art, the economy, science, technology and musings about creating a Culture of Peace.

Come join the discussion. I love Jazz, making the environment sustainable, and I think civil society only works when there is civil discourse. I hope you enjoy coming to my blog and sending your friends.

Noted journalist Edward R. Murrow said:

“Our major obligation is not to mistake slogans for solutions.”

“The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that it can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue.”

The above quotes are reminders that information passed around the internet and the media airwaves may not always be accurate or the most important thing we need to know. This Blog will explore issues of relevance to humanity regardless of whether it makes front page news or is covered by other media.

What is responsible journalism? What are relevant stories and news that helps us be well-informed and able to make wise choices?

Here’s a link to Kitty Reporter on You-Tube.

Stay a while and please start the dialogue rolling. I look forward to your civil comments. Please note that spam and uncivil comments will be deleted so be forewarned, Meaow!

    I have been surprised by the lack of civil political discourse in some of the threaded discussions in the blogs. I suspect it might reflect the sort of people we are (i.e., in American society). Here is the post if you are interested: http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/are-the-american-people-really-like-mr-smith/

      Euandus, Thanks for your comment. I agree. We need to have more civil discourse. As negotiator and educator Professor Roger Fisher said, “You can disagree without being disagreeable.” (See his book, “Getting to Yes.”) However, some people think if they just listen to a different point of view they are weak. Dialogue is good!
