Last fall, prior to the presidential election, I reported on the suicide of the mainstream media (MSM). I pointed out that they were abdicating their responsibility for fair, accurate, skeptical reporting in favor of advocacy “journalism.” It seems that the Media Research Center has quantified the failure of the MSM during the first 100 days of the new president’s administration.
It seems that journalism is dead, and this should worry us all. We need more watchdogs and fewer lapdogs.
