It is unthinkable… but the threat seems real and that would be the confirmation that WBEZ is endorsing the unwritten policy of Chicago mass media, which historically has treated Chicago as a provincial town, depriving its people of news and happenings from around the world.
Over the years, Worldview has placed Chicago on the world map and we have enjoyed news and commentary of world events, both cultural and political. Worldview has encouraged us to open our eyes and look beyond the short limits created and perpetuated by the media. Thanks to Worldview we see, embrace and appreciate other cultures.
Eliminating Worldview from WBEZ’s programming would be an unforgiving act of treason to its loyal audience.Pepe Vargas
