What Was "Journalism"

Journalism has descended into the abyss of "tabloid journalism" .... at best ... in the MSM. Also, the days of the "objective" reporter ... just reporting the "facts" ... has died ... and has been replaced by propagandists for the political politburo in Washington and the "academic" world of progressive elitism.

Media Research Center
Arianna Huffington's crazy left-wing, pro-Democrat website gets bought out by AOL for $315 million. Professional Angry Man Keith Olbermann follows up by joining Al Gore's deservedly unknown Current TV effort. Before that, decrepit Newsweek was absorbed by one of the lesser liberal lights of the blogosphere - Tina Brown's Daily Beast.

To journalists desperate for a direction - any direction - turning left seems an easy way to go. Forget MSNBC's brief propaganda attempt to "lean forward." That is going nowhere.

Old-style, supposedly neutral journalism is collapsing. Out of the rubble, we are seeing more and more journalists declare themselves to be what we've always known they were - liberal, left-wing, progressive or even "socialist," as MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell admitted late last year.....

The reality is that our current MSM has become nothing more than another arm of the "progressive" political party and is hell bent on dragging every "little person" that they so righteously say they defend ... into subservience to the state. We of course all know that what is best for the state is what is best for the little people ... you know ... so the state can take care of all of us ... feed us ... cloth us ... provide shelter for us ... provide health care for us ... teach us ... you know ... we would all be so much better off if we were just not responsible for our own lives and decisions.
