A year ago, when I sat on a panel discussing the future of local media, the professional journalists sharing the podium with me were appalled when I suggested that readers/viewers should be skeptical of everything they see in the media.

And to me, the fascinating thing is that many of our politicians, our elected officials, the bureaucratic culture that's been created over time, seems to feel the same about governance. They're actually stunned that people (residents/tax-payers/voters) inherently -and deeply- feel cynicism and distrust towards many/most/all of their representatives...and the system itself.

Funny, that.

Great article, Ryan. There's a massive disconnect going on, and I'm glad you're continuing to illustrate and illuminate from where you stand.
