Journalism is already so far gone. Why not just be honest about it?
New York Times Magazine staff writer Nikole Hannah-Jones said on CNN Sunday that Republicans have “gone rogue,” so there’s not need to be evenhanded. That as the Democrats drift toward socialism.
I think what happened is a larger symptom that we’re seeing in news organizations across the country, which is they are really struggling to cover in a way that appears to be nonpartisan a kind of political landscape where one political party has in many ways gone rogue and is not following the rules. But there’s a sense if you just cover that straight down the line, you will look like you are picking sides.
So, this adherence to even-handedness, both sides-ism, the view from nowhere, doesn’t actually work in the political circumstances that we’re in.
