France 24 is a bullshit news agency, and some of their articles adhere to the old Establishment rules, making them comical.
Like how Canada is “desperate” to fill 400,000+ jobs.
No, we are losing jobs left and right here. It is frightening how fast and furious the bloodletting has been here, and how many well-groomed beggars we have in “good areas” these days.
And how television news is “holding its ground”.
I wouldn’t bet on that, either.
The Winter of Discontent is here. Stalwarts such as the Right-leaning Weekly Standard are in serious trouble.
The Drudge Report is probably the only newsy out there that is still viable, and there are no end to the stories about the collapsing profession.
Drudge reminds me of Neil Gaiman’s The Endless character Death who is the one designated to close up everything the last news property bites the dust.
Speaking of television, it looks like the network that gives you 60 Minutes had an overlord that was destroying evidence of his bad deeds. Les Moonves was a naughty boy, but was the driving force of a media outlet.
How much of the facts do you think you know come from watching a network that allowed that kind of garbage to happen?
The rot is collapsing all around journalism. It was never dealt with when it was manageable, and now the piper is busy collecting what it owed.
Any journalist want to lie in public and pretend the profession hasn’t collapsed?
Yes, there are those who think maybe because the Washington Post is saying it is hiring, there is hope.
Give it a few months, they will be slashing. This game is nothing new.
The Reality Deniers run journalism and gather news stories. If they were doctors, they would tell a terminally ill cancer patient there is hope because they still have a few normal cells left in their bodies, and fuck all the cancer growing.
Cowardice makes liars of an entire profession.
And as I watch from the Sparrow’s Nest, I see the starving predators go after each other in a frenzy.
And it is an ugly, pathetic sight…
