CNS' Chief Propagandist Frets Over Future of Reporting
Topic: editor in chief Terry Jeffrey uses his May 3 column to fret ab out the future of journalism, because "We live in a nation where the government is growing exponentially and the press is shrinking steadily." He goes on to write:

But anyone who wants America to remain free cannot cheer the demise of the press as an institution. We need more reporters — especially reporters who love liberty and want to defend it — not fewer.

It may be a mistake for Americans to blithely accept the unexamined conclusion that the new electronic media, because of their speed and wide availability, will compensate for the virtual extinction of old-time reporters. Excellent reporting takes time and skills learned through experience — both of which require investment.

That's quite rich of Jeffrey to be concerned. After all, the organization he works for, the Media Research Center, has spent millions of dollars over the past couple of decades trying to undermine people's trust in the media in order to advance its partisan right-wing agenda.

Further, Jeffrey himself is no journalist -- he's a propagandist and rabid Obama-hater who's erasing whatever vestiges of journalistic credibility CNS might have in order to turn it into an anti-Obama propaganda mill.

This is nothing but crocodile dears. Jeffrey cares nothing about journalism, so he can't possibly care about its future.
