Positively “Whoa Baby” Media

Betty Louise's picture

What’s a “Whoa Baby?” Whoa Babies are segments that I have been producing on the radio for many years. They are sound bites that I have read or heard that make me stop and say “Whoa Baby,” because I am either inspired or because it wakes me up to something that needs attention and more positive action. What I love about being involved with Co-Passion Project (CPP), Golden Road Radio Hour (GRRH), and KVMR is that these efforts consciously help the planet and the people on the planet move into a more positive direction. 

 

You are probably aware of the movement towards creating a new kind of media in the world, and KVMR is a great example of unfiltered truth. The technological world has created so many new ways to deliver media content, that the old ways of newspapers and listening to the 6 o’clock news are disappearing. We are more educated about main stream media, knowing it is filtered and directed towards the goal of making people fearful so that they buy, act, vote in a certain way. In addition, in the 2005 documentary “The Corporation,” it was revealed that it is not illegal to present false news. That means that the news we are fearful about may or may not be the truth.

Dr. Andrew Weil, in his 1997 book “Eight weeks to Optimum Health,” recommended a hiatus from all news for one of those eight weeks. We will never access optimum health when we are gripped with fear. For decades, research and studies have demonstrated that heavy television-viewing may lead to serious health consequences.

In a study by Norman Herr, PhD, at California State University/Northridge, he reported that the average child will watch 8,000 murders on TV before finishing elementary school. By age eighteen, the average American has seen 200,000 acts of violence on TV, including 40,000 murders. Now that’s a WHOA BABY!

I believe that if we can paint the picture of a peaceful and positive world through media, we can create a world where humans can be positively human.

 

Please join me on this journey to create and share stories of humans being positively human.
