Memo to API: If you use the empty phrase "accountability journalism", you have no business being in it

Seriously, this job ad is one for the books:

API is hiring a Director of Accountability Journalism to help newsrooms report on people and institutions in power

If journalism wasn't being accountable for their own sins and lapses, then the phrase "accountability journalism" is mere Orwellian propaganda.

Really? You allow journalists to lie, exaggerate, crib press releases, and now you want to bolster yourselves and hide your own irresponsibility in this pathetic manner?

Journalism is still dead, and relabelling rot with doublespeak doesn't alter that reality...
