Eh, this reminds me of a Journalism course I received several years ago. The second slide (after introduction), was the sentence: “Journalism is NOT free speech”. The presenter argued that it became so because journalism works with rules that must be adhere to, including the purpose of educating the public, whether it matters to the public, covers both sides, etc. That is why the term ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘freedom of the press’ is differentiated. One can not live without the other, but it’s still different nonetheless.

Having an editor, and all of the physical function of a traditional news outlet doesn't make it journalism, unless you get all the checkpoints of journalism.

Well, things might change over time.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
