“Media tends to be biased and one-sided, world views are greatly underrepresented and skewed in ways that lean toward sterotypes, ignorant assumptions, and incomplete presentations of information. I don’t want to be that. I want to tell the truth, I want to talk about things that matter. I want to ask the questions that make people uncomfortable. Comfort does not elicit change. I want to change the game”
