With the media hacking scandals on both sides of the Atlantic, raising serious questions about global ethical standards in journalism, Simon Cohen, from the UK, explores a new paradigm of communications, and challenges the conventional wisdom that good news doesn't sell. He points to a new, humanizing model for communications - Communications with Conscience - which he argues can be a source of profit for a mainstream media sector in crisis, and a source of hope for tackling our planet's most pressing problems. Cohen challenges us to join a noble war on error, look behind the headlines of the media hacking scandal, and look to ourselves for the most inspiring media of all. Love and compassion, he says, is the ultimate competitive advantage in an otherwise murky media world.
