    There’s JOURNALISM and then there are EDITORIALS. That is the difference between FACTS and some one particular person’s OPINION about facts.
    -
    Stand out of the Fox Rush Noise Stream, take in the facts, discuss them with people who’ve also taken in the facts and then VOTE accordingly.
    -
    If we don’t vote, we’ll live in someone ELSE’S version of democracy.
    -
    Guess whose.

    I’ve missed good journalism for decades.

    After the Press showed it’s power during the Watergate scandals, the top “voters” determined that the Press will never again oust their man. Slowly, newspapers, and many journals were bought up by major companies and investors. The Press is now largely under their control. Any investigative reporter who gets too “uppity” will be warned by his editor (who was warned from above). If that reporter persists, he will be looking for another job!

    If we had good journalism, we never would have had this administration.

    And they are still turning a blind eye.

    Now the investigative reporters can blog and be referred as cranks.

    Who can blame investigative reporters for a lack of investigations? Pressure from outlet editors and owners to report only on subjects they want investigated. Of course the thought of NSA monitoring might have a bit of a chilling effect on what’s investigated. Then again, there is the Justice Departments treatment of whistle blowers that might consider contacting an investigative reporter.

    One has to read John Perkins. The US has the only free, honest press in the world, so we know for a fact that the Commies attacked a US Naval ship in International Waters and the US had absolutely no choice but to drop more tonnage of bombs on those Commies than it had dropped in every preceding military engagement (counting the equivalent tonnage of conventional explosives for the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki).


    And we know that Saddam had an arsenal of new WMD, including nukes, that only the cleverest and most patriotic Americans (which included almost every American reporter) could see. We know Saddam’s arsenal was days, maybe hours, from being ready to launch against the US, an arsenal larger than that of the USSR that would have totally destroyed the US had Bush, jr not acted just in the nick of time (and there was no time to provide US troops with any armour).


    And we know Noriega committed heinous crimes against the US that Bush, sr had to address.


    The US is lucky that we have a press that always tells us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

    Unfortunately news shows are now mostly entertainment. There are very few that provide the necessary context or do an in depth analysis of a situation. Very few even attempt to cover anything that doesn’t have some immediate sensation or drama attached to it. I am sure the old time journalists are spinning in their graves.

    “good journalism” must also be in the “eye of the reader”….
    Bradlee prostituted Journalism to cover up for Democrat Presidents beginning with JFK and to use as leadership in ousting GOP Nixon.
    -
    IMO that is far, far from “good journalism” which must be neutral and not biased and must refrain from campaigns to destroy the opposition by politicizing policy and uses even diseases and their handling, in the crusade to topple GOP leaders, while practicing “no see, no hear, and no report of buddy Democrats”….
