The American media are under self-attack: Journalists offer frank opinions on journalism.
Realizing that the American public’s trust in media has declined sharply, New York magazine decided to investigate further and ask its own journalists and their colleagues at other media outlets what is wrong with journalism. The result is a list of critical, refreshingly honest and often negative comments on the media and the weak points of professional journalism. The original online article includes links to the full interviews, so the determined reader can get a fuller picture. getAbstract recommends this article to journalists and those interested in media professions, professionalism and journalistic integrity.
In this summary, you will learn
- What a cross-section of American journalists think of media and journalism today, and
- What reasons they have to feel optimistic.
Comment on this summary
4 months agoI think that the taboo topic of 'a free press versus a regulated press' merits a more open and deeper discussion in the current state of affairs across the globe. This could be a start but not even nearly enough.
