I think I’m done. Let me check. Yes. I definitely am done with people blaming the media for the ills of society.
The loud cry across the land of biased reporting and “Lame Stream” media falls on my ears like so much dust on the evening newspaper nobody buys any more.
Make no mistake there are a great many problems in journalism today. You know what? The audience is responsible for a lot of it.
Journalism is a capitalistic venture. We produce a product that we can sell. Most of the time it means honest weather reporting and cheesy sports reporting intertwined with assorted crime, fires with good flame video and a macabre conglomeration of celebrity gossip, biased political, science and entertainment news.
