The Result of Journalism's Failure

We had a war in Iraq for one basic reason:  journalism failed.   Bill Moyers documented that in superb fashion.   Every citizen who wishes to be informed should watch Buying the War. 

Now we have President elect Trump for the same reason.  American journalism failed.

When journalism fails, bad things happen. 

When will America's television networks start paying attention to something other than profit margin and stock price and executive compensation?   When will they demonstrate some integrity and do the journalism that needs to be done?

With the war, we paid and continue to pay a high price.   

With Trump, the price will be far higher.
