Objective journalism?

A damning analysis of how contemporary print journalism works, from The Fake Steve Jobs.

Monday’s reading starts off with this damning analysis of how contemporary print journalism works, from The Fake Steve Jobs. He writes:

“They have to pretend to be “objective,” but what that really means is you put a vague headline on the story and you write the top in some boring way but then you just stack up a pile of negative quotes from people who don’t like the Borg — bam, bam, bam — but you spread them out, and you put some boring stuff in between them, like so many pillows between so many grenades…”

Read it all.

(Thanks to my comrade “Boris” for the tip.)
