RE: The Forgery Mystery

What about that producer giving a source an intro to higher-ups in a political party? I think that indicates a relationship that is bad for the public good. Politicians and newspeople should be natural enemies, not collaborators.

This is the problem I have with newsies and political flacks moving in and out of government and media corporations. I think it is worse for society for media and government to be cozy than for business and governoment to be cozy.

On whom can you depend for information concerning the government, a compromised news source?

RE: The Forgery Mystery

I remember when the term " Advocacy Journalism" became popular; it always bothered me. Thats a term that ought to be considered as ridiculous as some of the other oxymorons in our langauge.
Another term for advocacy journalism is " propaganda"
