The Stupids

One thing that puzzles me about journalists is how clueless they often seem to be about their own profession. Anyone who has spent 5 seconds thinking about these things knows that there is one definition of "journalist," there are simply different models of journalism. We can argue about what should be the predominant model of journalism in our most prominent media oulets.

There's opinion journalism, activist journalism, idelogical journalism, etc. None of these things are intrinsically bad, as long as they're factually and logically sound.
