One certainty that I’ve personally learned and experienced, is that we’re living in a globalized world and there’s no going back. As a world, we’re more integrated and diverse with international institutions, agreements, and cooperation leading the way to a more harmonious society.Miguel A. Blancarte, Jr., Georgetown Washington University and Brown University, hailing from Little Village
Threats, wars, and disagreements, as well as false media and misinformation, are also more prevalent, and thus the need for informed international news. And so I’m confused as to why WBEZ (Chicago Public Media), Chicago’s NPR news station is planning on shutting the lights on Worldview, their global affairs news program. Factual news via programs like Worldview are extremely important – now more than ever.
As a first-generation American millennial who was born and raised in Chicago’s Little Village – and who has lived in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Mexico, I hope “Worldview” stays on the air.
