Just like Capitalism, when Journalism gets drunk on profit as the primary motivating factor in how people do their jobs, everything starts to look like an advertisement; Integrity, professionalism etc all gets shit on.
This isn’t all Journalism’s fault, much of it lies in the need for people to be entertained…and we all know the low bar that maximizes entertainment while minimizing substance. Donald Trump is the epitome of shallow junk food to cram down the public’s throat.
It’s incredibly frustrating. Good to know you see a light at the end of the tunnel, and a possible resurgence of Journalism with a fire under their ass to do it right.
