Our media class sucks. It just sucks.

And you know what? It’s going to keep on sucking. But that doesn’t mean we should just sit idly by and let it happen.

Nailed it.

But watch them try.

That’s what makes this all so depressing, though. We can call these people out until we’re blue in the face, but as long as they refuse to hold all the bad apples accountable, they have no incentive to do better.

Barring a genuine miracle, it would indeed appear that journalism is going to hell in a handbasket and, instead of pumping the breaks, the media are hitting the gas.

Not only will they still have jobs, but they’ll be rewarded for their hackery and intellectual dishonesty.
