I think that ship sailed long ago.
Truth be damned.
“I’m a Biased Journalist” is an oxymoron!!!
Yes, and Comrade Stalin (Biden)’s speech was greeted with a forty minute standing ovation and this was from the “press”.
We enjoy “Outcome Based Journalism” now.
The obvious conclusion is that journalism is equivalent to propaganda
I smell a Soros rat behind this.
Big Media “journalism” has not been objective in my lifetime.
I have no problem with this- everyone is entitled to their opinion, they just have to state their agenda and not pretend to be impartial- like they do now
😂 Yup. Days late and many dollars short, news “leaders”, and I use that term loosely. Kinda like the trots. Hey lame stream media——🖕
the complete bias in the “new media” has been obvious for decades. If the media tells me it is Wednesday, I check the calendar.
I think that we are rapidly seeing the results of “opinion journalism”.. massive distrust, extremely low ratings, news papers floundering, going out of business, etc..
I would argue that a News service that was absolutely unbiased one that gave a “Straight story”/ just the facts.
Or one was given a unbiased story and then that was then commented on by a “left” and a “right” with equal time format would actually be a winner.
Objectivity is essential to a proper understanding of reality and to making rational decisions. This statement represents a rejection of reason and a surrender to subjectivism and relativism.
It's also laziness. Taking all the hard parts out of any field (including science) is "liberating" but honesty has departed and the field is irreparably cheapened. This is only possible through a deep conviction that there is no truth: nihilism, not advocacy. And yes, it's been going on for a very long time.
Hey hey, ho ho,
Objectivity has got to go!
Hey hey, ho ho...
“Journalism” is not the same as “Editorializing”. Journalism is the reporting of facts (who, what where, how, why, when), editorializing is stating of opinion or the writer mixing fact with their opinion. Objective journalism is journalism. Subjective journalism is Propaganda.
This paves the way for legitimacy of entertainment shows purporting to disseminate the ‘news’.
Alinsky’s ultimate goal was to infuse activism into every aspect of western culture. The kenyan is a devotee and accomplished said goal.
