Keep It Kind is The Daily Listening‘s policy to ensure – you guessed it – kindness in our content.
Online media is a noisy place where opinions are force fed at the speed of sound and where the lines are often blurred between quality journalism and page views. Over the years, music journalism has gained a reputation for being callous and pretentious. When seasoned musicians call journalists “the devil,” there’s definitely an error in the system. We want to change all of that. It all starts with kindness and a burning desire to focus on the positive.
We here at The Daily Listening take pride in our work to ensure that all information is accurate and free of vulgarity and snark. We will never compromise our integrity and our values for a page view. Though some content may be from a subjective point of view, we only seek to shine a light on the positive aspects. We are music enthusiasts, not critics.
If we don’t like it or don’t have anything nice to say about it, we won’t cover it. Period. Honestly, we have better things to do than crap all over an artist’s work. 😉
“All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society, we can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it to a higher level.” – Bill Bernbach
