Is this some sort of accidental mea culpa for Brian Stelter?
Big new @benyt column:
"The shift in mainstream American media — driven by a journalism that is more personal, and reporters more willing to speak what they see as the truth without worrying about alienating conservatives — now feels irreversible."https://t.co/oO11nprnWd

So they are AOK with basically discriminating against and alienating a large section of America.
Good to know:
From the New York Times:
But the shift in mainstream American media — driven by a journalism that is more personal, and reporters more willing to speak what they see as the truth without worrying about alienating conservatives — now feels irreversible. It is driven in equal parts by politics, the culture and journalism’s business model, relying increasingly on passionate readers willing to pay for content rather than skittish advertisers.
That shift will come too late for Mr. Lowery’s career at The Washington Post. After Ferguson, he proposed and was a lead reporter on a project to build the first national database of police shootings and draw lessons from the results. It won The Post a Pulitzer Prize in 2016. He seemed to insiders and outsiders the prototype of the precocious, nakedly ambitious, somewhat arrogant and very talented (though usually white and male) reporter who has risen quickly at American newspapers.
And this is exactly why the media as a whole is falling apart.
One might call it "fake news."

Ding ding ding. Get the man a prize!
Journalism is DEAD.

Dead and buried.
We don’t want journalism that is more “personal.” Your opinions & feelings bring nothing to a story. In fact, they distort it.

Congratulations. You invented blogging.

Then loosing the status as a journalist might be in order. Compare it to the left saying that people that they he believe to be unfit for guns will have 2a stripped from them. Will that work?

That’s quite a way to say “liberal lies”

Or a fancy way to say bullsh*t.
Hey tater, come to my class I will be teaching on how to be a real journalist! You will learn something!

“What they see as truth” means they write their opinion, not THE truth. And their SJW bosses don’t care when conservatives “pounce or seize.”

“What they see as the truth” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

So not reporting actual facts but rather your opinions and beliefs?
In other words, fake news.

Finally admitting that you are leftist tools.

Thanks for admitting that you’re all a bunch of lying little weasel nut sacks.
