‘What is journalism?’ is probably a very elementary but necessary question to ask right now. In the olden times of pre-2000, what made it easy for people to distinguish between respected journalists and ‘filler’ journalists used to be the sheer quality of reporting they delivered; solid investigations, probing questions and impressive sources. Today, the nature of all those factors has changed. This video titled ‘The Rise and Fall of the TV Journalist’ really encapsulates this. It’s a little bit old-school, a little bit more critical in its review of the profession, but some key observations really flesh out what is going on today.
