Knowledge is Power. Ignorance Kills.
O.W.B Public Affairs Digest was created and launched by Olivia P. Walker in 2017 as a digital media platform and online magazine for people interested in nuanced commentary, news, and strategic insights relating to society, industry and the actions taken by government. O.W.B delivers relevant, nuanced and innovative public affairs resources — and fresh perspectives — through social media engagement.
Societal feelings, beliefs, opinions and actions are responses to “pictures in our heads,” not to the world itself. Mass media now provide most of these pictures, giving news outlets a substantial responsibility for shaping discourse and the context for policy. John Wihbey
Why Read O.W.B
Government and government policy impact the realities people face everyday. On a daily basis, members of Congress, the Trump administration, and officials throughout state and local governments make decisions on behalf of the public. On a daily basis, mass media outlets fail to adequately inform the public of these events.
- In many cases, the public is unaware of the actions taken by government.
- This is a problem. A problem O.W.B Public Affairs Digest solves by providing free access — and publicly available — news, insights, commentary, research, insights and analyses.
