What’s eating journalism: The objectivity myth…

This is a cracking analysis of what’s eating journalism. Much of it does not originate with the journalists at the front line, but the layers and layers of editorial filtering at the ownership/senior manage level in order not to upset a particular set of special interests. At the heart of it is a spurious concept of objectivity. H/T Mairtin

    Well it did take a long time (years) before Robbo got asked some of the direct questions that have been asked recently. Was it that we sensed he was wounded and then felt safe to pounce….
    Anyway it was a poor advertisment for the quality and rigour of our journalism. It seems we thrive on rumour and gossip about our senior politicos but avoid asking the direct questions.
