    I will disagree that journalism is not journalism. I will agree that good journalism has been replaced by showbiz. The good journalism is out there, but like good music, you have to look for it. It is not on the mainstream media.

    That is not a bad approach as long as you read more than one newspaper. I wrote for small town newspapers. I had a fair size readership. However, they also read the larger papers in nearby cities.

    Jim, you probably listen to Pacifica Radio as well with Amy Goodman? You'd love Ian Masters if you haven't listened to him. He's on in CA from 5 -6 pm Pacific Time and you can live stream from www.kpfk.org

    You are entitled to receive the news however you wish. However, when the messenger becomes more important than the message, a problem can arise. I have favorites and some I cannot stand, but I listen to both and try to discern the middle ground.

    News on the Internet is not independently fund, and no new source has ever been independently funded. The grocery ads in your local paper and the car ads on your local TV and radio stations fund the coverage. The issue is whether that causes bias..

    News by its nature has to be negative. In theory, everyone is expected to be honest and do the right thing. When the dishonest take over the the right things are not done, then the event becomes newsworthy.
