The Death of Journalism

Take notice, MSM (lol)
I'm gonna write a piece on how journalism has stopped being a vital force of information for society. Instead, it has become a place of hysteria, celebrity and partisanship.
Points of Views instead of News.
Talking heads instead of investigators and fact checkers.
All Mainstream News is propaganda for its station owners, its advertisers and its preferred politicans.
News outlets profile their audiences and mirror their opinions in their reportage. It's become mass media masturbation.

Look out BIG MEDIA. I'm coming atcha. (But in a very self-effacing, humble and Canadian way.)

Anyone wanna start the thread and contribute some ideas that I can credit when I get going on the thing?

(note to all - the pomposity above is meant for humor...)
