a little further pushback; maybe stop thinking of all journalism as ‘news’. Features can be researched over weeks and months with plenty of time to dig into things; look at the Mother Jones piece on private prisons for only the first example that comes to mind. And editors care deeply about nuance and phrasing. We need to acknowledge the pressures on journalism of deadlines and business models and the attention economy — but a less broad brush is going to give you a more accurate picture.
