Professional Journalism may be our only way to defend this mess we call Democracy

Posted on Posted in Journalism, Politics

Professional journalism is the only thing [it seems] between us and the terror of fake news and George Orwell’s predictions like DoubleThink and pronouncements from “The Ministry of Truth.” Journalists must keep doing their job, please, please, please. We need you so badly in this alternative universe we find ourselves in. Also very happy to see a “small” newspaper in WV win a Pulitzer – how fantastic is that. Any newspaper could be next.  Remember that light can be the greatest disinfectant for shady politicians and half-truths.
