The established media, including the broadcast media, really are being challenged by online platforms. The same change appears to have affected the outcome of the US Presidential election, and the delusional reading of it by the ‘proper’ journalists in the mainstream media.
Many newspapers may have closed – but not because people were asleep, it is because today Western newspapers are not worth reading!
Journalists lack imagination to find interesting stories and the energy to research topics in detail. The news that we receive in every newspaper is merely a regurgitated copy from news agencies who themselves issue limited information on Global news items.
Seeing as how journalism has come to mean propagandising that would fill Goebbels with pride I’d say the label anti-journalist is one to be worn with pride.
The general populace was cowed into shutting up and accepting the groupthink for many years. Not only accepting it but paying for it too through license and subscription fees. We have humiliated ourselves by allowing elites to do this to us.
Many of the readers already know more about various issues than the reporters by the time a topic is released. If newspapers want to be popular they should publish items that are truthful and factual and be determined to be the first to break stories.
That has not been the case for many years now and it is so bad that even outside countries are complaining about the ‘biased Western News’.
