Sean Hannity, the “MOUTH of FOX NEWS”, made the statement tonight, (Jan 19, 2011) that : “JOURNALISM IN AMERICA IS DEAD.”
He’s wrong, dead wrong!
It’s alive and well on Talk Radio, (his show specifically), on Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage, on any number of other Fox News cable shows. There’s also the Wall Street Journal …. the respectful exception to the rule, …. ‘that most newspapers are nothing but wrappers for Rahm’s fish deliver service!’
Where news is most alive, is on the blog-o-sphere!
It’s even alive, … yes, … sometimes, …. even on CNN and if the news … happens to fit into the left’s agenda, then it can even be found in a propaganda sheet sometimes … ratgerm once upon a time called, a newspaper – – – the New York Times!
But, the AP …. the Apathetic Public in America has been molded into an elastic-jello-mush which now, accepts FLUFF instead of, what is now called NEWS!
I urge people to remember back to June / July of 2010, when the conspiratorial group of working journalists that operated the “Newsgroup” called “JournoList”.
Even reported on Wikipedia, (quote below) they were working together and (instead of following the president’s request, it’s obvious that, some of these same “journalists”, are still working to spread vitriol against the conservatives). They focus on “spinning” news, and attacking effective and articulate people on the right.
The Politico article set off debate within the Blogosphere over the ethics of participating in JournoList and raised questions about its overall purpose. The first public excerpt of a discussion within JournoList was posted by Mickey Kaus on his blog on March 26, 2009.
On June 25, 2010, The Daily Caller published private e-mails from David Weigel denigrating conservatives, who he covered for the paper. That same day, Weigel resigned from the Post, and Klein, who announced in his Washington Post blog that he would shortly terminate the JournoList group. On June 25, JournoList — the listserv that hosted Weigel’s disparaging e-mails — was deleted by Klein. Weigel’s resignation caused Klein to decide to terminate the discussion group.”
