This fake news thing: What will the news media learn?

The American press’ new paradigm: not journalism, but information operation

The Russia story is evidence that top reporters are still feeding from the same trough—political operatives, intelligence agencies, etc.—because they don’t know how to do anything else, and their editors don’t dare let the competition get out ahead. Why would the Post, for instance, let the Times carve out a bigger market share of the anti-Trump resistance? And what’s the alternative? Report the story honestly? Don’t publish questionably sourced innuendo as news?

maybe, but not doing researched 'news'. it'll be mostly tabloid turd with a more extreme political bent, all for ad and click revenue.

because it's readers are dumb and gullible.

For first time the failing @nytimes (external - login to view) will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!

The Ford saga marked a jubilant triumph by the media over dumb populism.

You're seeing the same thing happen now with Trump.

I used to work for a company owned by a family of evangelical "Christians". Two decades earlier, we were literally ordered to buy our product labelling from Deco (the Rob Ford company) presumably because the Fords talked their talk (or, perhaps, one of the owners played some golf with Rob or Doug ... that's all it took).

By the time that the real Rob Ford had revealed himself, not a trickle of business went to Deco. I don't know that they even have an account with them, any more.

They didn't say that CNN is not fake news, but that the associated press and all news organizations should boycott the W. H.
And they should like they did when Obama refused to let in Fox New a while back

That's what free speech is all about...

That was a real bad move by the W. H.

There is no doubt that the "traditional" news organizations are not driven by the desire to ferret out real news anymore.

Why would a news organization boycott the WH, when they have a real opportunity to score a scoop? Could it be that real news isn't what they are after? News people are not wide eyed dreamers. The traditional ones didn't mind digging around to find out the story behind the story. That drive isn't completely gone, but it is being replaced by a younger crowd, bent on saying whatever needs to be said to get air time.

They are still taught to dig for the truth, but the real world is changing them. Forget what they taught you in school. Two Teenburgers for $7!

Sad.

"There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the **er, and this will always be "the man in the street." Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology.".
