One thing that bothers me is when the Media (I’ll dignify it with neither “News” nor “Journalism”) gets focused on a single topic and you hear the same thing (normally wild speculation) over and over and over again. That’s when you need YouTube or Netflix or Duck Tales on Disney XD (Voiced by Who Two- Tennant).
Oh, and also all the time. Once I had a serious news habit, thought Donahue was the bomb. Then I quit cold turkey for a long time, until Keith really. I had thought myself well informed but was forced to reassess by the Internet. Now I have it on background all the time and find it a useful clock while being less likely to draw my attention than Monster Trucks.
American Media is Bad and Here’s Why
So much for Objective Journalism. Don’t bother to look for it here–not under any byline of mine; or anyone else I can think of. With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.
Objective journalism is one of the main reasons that American politics has been allowed to be so corrupt for so long.
