It's no secret that the age of unbiased journalism is over. Perhaps it was an anomaly in time, a hiccup in history. I wasn't old enough to have lived through Edward R. Murrow or Walter Cronkite, but these two seem to be the bookends on the golden age of journalism. I did a brief stint in the field, but are there any real journalism experts on this board? I'd really like to hear their thoughts on why objective journalism has gone the way of the Dodo. Dont get me wrong...I get the basics- extreme opinions = better ratings and journalism is a business...most facts can be spun...today's public doesn't have the time or inclination to put work into what they're listening to... I've heard that for most of modern history, news rags were knownto be biased...and you picked what rag you read based on your agreed bias... but surely there's a way to go back to real, unbiased reporting? Is even the PBS NewsHour spun too much?
