Is anyone else out there as let down by what passes for journalism these days as I am? After working in the public sector for a decade I can't help but observe that the vast majority of the journalism work product I encounter is not only poor, but a simplistic diservice to the public. I know a few good journalists. I've read a few good stories that covered a complex subject well, but I cannot count the times I've had to spend hours with citizens correcting a public perception that resulted from poor journalism, sensationalism, or just lazy reporting.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
