The Ethos Of The New "Journamalism"
American journalists, unlike many of their foreign counterparts, have a strong commitment to objectivity and nonpartisanship. - Newsweek
Glenn Greenwald discusses Peter Maas' New Yorker piece on "Armed Forces Media" (the Establishment Media) and how the Media is subservient to the interests of the American government. Glenn's piece is good and in a postscript, he pointed to the Newsweek article I quote at the top of this post. A laughable statement of course, but more than that, what's missing is even a feigned commitment to reporting the truth. The fact is the Wikileaks situation has been an exposing moment for "journamalism." I'll explain why I think so on the flip.
