Journalism is Dead

Journalism is Dead—Long Live the Media! By Victor Davis Hanson
Excerpt: There still exists a physical media in the sense of airing current events. But it is not journalism as we once understood the disinterested reporting of the news. Journalism is now dead. The media lives on. Reporters today believe that their coverage serves higher agendas of social justice, identity politics, “equality,” and diversity. To the degree a news account is expanded or ignored, praised or blasted, depends on its supposed utility to the effort to fundamentally transform the country into something unlike its founding. (A beautifully thorough dissection of "journalism" today. Which is, actually, almost totally lacking, replaced by a messy, damaging media. --Del)
