Epitaph for journalism

Eric Boehlert has a great dissection of modern "reporting", showing how the American media has become corrupted and biased:

So to summarize: ABC News confirms that it will chase any right-wing "fight" even if it's baseless; even if it's "unfounded." In reporting those fights, ABC News will purposefully exclude Democrat voices from the story. And ABC News, while acknowledging a fight is "unfounded," will allow partisan Republicans to blame the White House for the "controversy."

It's in ABC's own words, folks, not some Democratic Party memo. It's just the latest evidence that the "news" business in this country promotes arguments; the media treats every issue as "on the one hand, on the other hand" even when one side tells the truth and the other side lies.
