The New Journalism Is Destroying Us

• https://www.paulcraigroberts.orgPaul Craig Roberts

It is becoming more difficult and more dangerous to tell the truth.  Censorship is closing down reliable information.  The Establishment has lost patience with those who dispute its narratives.

Science is being politicized. Orwell's memory hole is opening wider.  Accountability is everywhere disappearing as civil liberties are contravened by Elite agendas.

Today truth is the last thing that can be taken for granted. Think about this as you consider my appeal.

Now for today's column:

The New Journalism Is Destroying Us

Paul Craig Roberts

Presstitute is a contraction of press prostitute.  It is a term that has come into widespread use to describe the media's service in behalf of the narratives of the corrupt Western ruling Establishment.  That the presstitutes serve the material and political interests of their Establishment owners is completely obvious.  But the media did not give up its integrity for material interests alone. The media have become acolytes to the religious  ideology of "social justice."

In the Winter 2021 issue of the Manhatten Institute's City Journal, Martin Gurri explains that the media have abandoned all pretense of objective reporting, because the media, or enough of it, believe that objectivity upholds systemic racism and defeats social justice.
