Accuracy in Media

Journalism is facing serious upheaval in the industry as newspapers are suffering readership losses as the population goes digital and becomes more mobile, with salaries tending to trend low and the profession ranking toward the bottom on being the worst job in America.

CNN wrote an article over the weekend highlighting the most popular GIFs (i.e. shortened media clips) for the year 2017.

Is this old-fashioned journalism, or is this the reality of the future of journalism to appeal to more tech-savvy millennials?

    John Leo, a columnist with U.S. News & World Report, wrote in April 24, 2000, that Big Media is “a troubled business that keeps hiring employees whose attitudes vastly annoy the customers. Then [media] sponsor lots of symposiums and a credibility project dedicated to wondering why customers are annoyed and fleeing in large numbers.” The media, Leo wrote, does not want to “look for reporters who differ broadly by outlook, values, education and class.”

    I worked as a successful, upwardly mobile journalist in small markets (akin to minor leagues in baseball), going from a small-town general reporter to publisher/editor of the county paper. But I was not politically correct and so I was harassed by local Communist cells until fired in 1989. I never worked in media again except for an inconsequential lifestyle magazine. This is how and why competent diverse people never make it to the big leagues.

    Reasons like this are why I switched from journalism to education. I wanted to partake in a career that actually benefited people, not ideologies.
