027 – Scott Schmidt and Truth to Power

What's this episode all about?

In today’s episode of Powerful, Jeff Couillard and Scott Schmidt have a wide ranging conversation, centred around the role of media in speaking truth to power and holding government to account for their actions.

Scott is the layout editor at the Medicine Hat News, and his Saturday column “Laying It Out” has drawn a great deal of attention lately as he takes aim at government misinformation, propoganda and decisions that are being made in the interest of corporations over citizens.

Scott offers some advice on how and where to consume your news, and some hard-hitting questions about what we truly value, and whether or not our governments are actually delivering on improving the quality of life for the people they’re supposed to be in power for.
