cpj2016eThe Committee to Protect Journalists honored journalists from Egypt, India, Turkey, and El Salvador this evening with the International Press Freedom Awards.

This comes at a difficult time for journalism in America, with leading news organizations under fire for propagandizing and multiplying the dishonesty of America’s wars, BLM, and HRC’s candidacy, and for failing to predict the outcome of the election (perhaps intentionally in the hope of altering the outcome).

Having failed as propagandists and prognosticators, the question is what does the future hold for ‘journalism’ in America? — with journalism schools long ago giving up on balanced thinking in favor of activism. One graybeard we spoke with said “the situation is very f_cked-up.”

It might be some time before Americans normalize relations with major news organizations.
