The Media/Journalism Thread

Recommended Posts


U.S. journalists/reporters (from the WH correspondents to mainstream newspapers like NYT) need to show this type of solidarity when they know their profession is being undermined by those in elevated positions.

Here we go again - media crybabies whining about their shitty reporting being criticized, and their sycophants following suit.

So I gather most of you would have seen this little ditty flying around on Twitter by now. Now I don’t have much opinion on Jonathan Swan himself considering that he is as much an access journalist as Maggie Haberman. But he does seem to do a good job of pushing back on Trump here.

 

As an aside, one thing I only learned this morning: he happens to be the son of one of the health experts on Australian public radio, Norman Swan, who has incidentally been one of the leading voices in the ongoing COVID debate back home in Australia, especially i Melbourne where there is currently a second wave occurring.

God, it's like an episode of The Thick of It.

 

No wonder Iannucci refuses to revive Thick of It and walked away from Veep. He's exhausted with this stuff. 

 

Sad to say this type of interview is exactly why so much of the media wants 4 more years.

I'm glad they fought back, but Newsweek has been a trash magazine for decades (spending much of the '90s pushing anti-gay propaganda).

Newsweek was gutted and turned into a content/clickbait mill a la Facebook with no real editorial some years back. It is not what it was even back in the 90s.

 

Meanwhile, in case anyone cares: Mark Halperin is currently relegated to right wing outlet Newsmax alongside Diamond and Silk and Sean Spicer.
