    your thoughts on the concept of "fake news".

    what's your definition of "fake news"? Is it what ever Trump says it is? Or does it have an actual definition of it's own? What's your opinion of our president presuming to tell American citizen's which news broadcast should be believed? Is it dangerous to our republic , or no big deal? What do...

    COLUMBIA JOURNALISM REVIEW, NOT questioning Trump's mental health is a public betraya

    This isn't exactly People or RAW STORY or even the NY Times. This is more than interesting coming from this source. It is in the context of when journalism should broach the subject of Trump's mental health. At what point do they REPORT? At what point do they dare to offer commentary on what...

    Al Jazeera America signs off the air tonight (April 12)

    After 2.5 years, Al Jazeera America has shut down after failing to break through in the American cable news format. I have to admit, some of the programming there was good. I guess probably the name of the station (Al Jazeera America) was not appealing to the average American cable news viewer...

    After Arab Spring, journalism briefly flowered and then withered

    After Arab Spring, journalism briefly flowered and then withered - The Washington Post I can't understand why we support all those middle eastern jihadist monarchies.

    Despicable ''yellow journalism'' coverage of same-sex marriage

    First, the news that SCOTUS denied certiorari on same-sex marriage appeals is not ''shocking'' or ''jaw-dropping.'' Since the 1980's, SCOTUS is not required to exercise appellate jurisdiction over any case. There is no conflict among the federal circuits that have invalidated state laws...

    The REAL Problem with US Journalism

    The problem isn't Fox News or MSNBC. You know where they're coming from most of the time. The problem is the rest of them. Especially the ones who make the Sunday morning talking bobblehead shows circuit and write syndicated columns. The ones who say with an air superiority that "both sides do...

    think for yourself (history lessons!)

    It worries me how easily some people’s opinions are swayed by articles they read. I studied history to GCSE level and one of the things the teacher insisted for her students was source analysis – who wrote the source? what were there motives? does the source contradict other sources?. She...

    Chris Matthews fails at journalism again.

    Somebody should tell him to do his homework before going on the air. Half way through the video you can see the look in his eyes as if somebody is yelling in his ear piece, "Shut the hell up you idiot! He's legit!"

    Benghazi, Journalism and Fox News

    (cross posted because I want to discuss this). Fox really proved it's a serious news organization this past election. Almost entirely alone, Fox did serious journalism, which is to pursue the truth wherever it leads, confront the powers that be and ignore the consequences. In the Benghazi...
