How Did Bad Journalists Get that Way?

by George Leef

In this Accuracy in Media article, Tucker Carlson bemoans the state of journalism these days.

He condemns the practice of journalists who air their opinions on social media, noting that it has a “corrosive effect on the public’s trust.”

And how did things get this way? Carlson describes journalism school as “an indoctrination center” — a “sameness factory that pumps out people with identical opinions.” Worse, those factories are “only accessible to a certain kind of person — the exact kind of person we don’t need any more of in journalism — affluent, entitled, activist.”

Carlson is right. By capturing the “commanding heights” in the training (rather, indoctrinating) of journalists, the left has succeeded in one of its main goals, namely dictating how people must think.
