From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I was an avid reader of newspapers, news magazines and watcher of TV news for more than 50 years. My parents taught me that it was my obligation as a citizen to be informed. So I read a daily newspaper, Time and US News & World Report and watched ABC news. I was informed and felt so._x000B_I haven't read or watched a single one of those sources in more than 10 years. If you read my local daily, The Palm Beach Post, you will get only that news the radical left wishes you to have. The same is true of the two news weeklies and unarguably true of ABC news._x000B_My suggestion for fixing journalism is to end biased reporting, social engineering and get reporters informed. I used to be interviewed by a business reporter who was wholly ignorant of every aspect of business from accounting principles to EEOC and everything in between. But she had been educated at Harvard and was absolutely positive about business: profits are inherently evil; business is the oppressor; and to work is to be a slave._x000B_This says two things about the media. First they are trained by people who hate what America was founded on: self reliance, hard work, and duty. Second I'm sure the Post could have found a business reporter who was marginally capable, but that would not have served their purpose which is not to report bu advocate left wing social engineering._x000B_Therein is a succinct statement of the cause of decline in media. It advocates for the Democrat party._x000B_Jay Molyneaux
