Maybe the greatest career choice I made was NOT pursuing Journalism as a career.
The profession has been corrupted by the Left/Right political system. Rare are the stories written with an open mind with the entire spectrum of facts presented allowing an open interpretation of events.
The failure of the profession to stand up for itself…and puts its’ foot down to stop this has allowed it to be used as a pawn by both parties and created the situation where the entire industry has become impotent and irrelevant.
Do yourself a favor and research what you read…consider the source and what political/economic investment the distributor of information has in the story.
Evaluate if you think Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Keith Olbermann and Rachael Maddow present facts or just what hey want you to hear. Look at Drudge and Huffington and see what stories they put in front of you.
