Does America need Journalists?

American Thinker: Chris Cillizza of CNN sent one of the most unintentionally hilarious posts into the Twittersphere when he proudly displayed his new (and ugly) sweater that read “America Needs Journalists.”

Apart from the obvious tone-deafness of the message being sent at a time when most American would gladly trade the entire CNN staff for a single grocery store worker, trucker, medic, or just about anything else, this intrepid CNN American hero stumbled upon a sentiment that conservatives can fully get behind.  America does need journalists.  Too bad we have so few of them.

Irony is never quite as thick as when journalists are preening about themselves, fretting about Democracy dying in darkness or patting themselves on the back for their extreme courage and manifest importance.  For today’s journalists who follow the Acosta/Cillizza model, why report on a story when you can make yourself one? read more

  1. Dear Diary, America needs me. Why can’t they see that? I’m important. If not for me, how would ignorant Americans know what to think?

  2. The U.S. has lots and lots of journalists. I’m not using that hijacked word the way the hijackers do: to mean people who write or speak about current events. I’m using the word to include everybody who writes a blog or comments on sites such as iOTWreport. We’re ALL journalists now!

    We also have a quite a number of people reporting on current events, even some who are fairly objective. Unfortunately, none of these seem to be working for the MSM partisan propaganda organs. But we do have some mighty fine citizen journalists reporters, and I’m damned grateful for them.

  4. 3000 MSM employees telling the same story with the same spin on the same day, as you are told to do, is not journalism. Hiding democrat lies, corruption, crimes, and scandals is not journalism. Lying about all thing Republican is not journalism.

  6. Yes, we need journalist, but we don’t have any. It’s not a supply problem, they just aren’t making them anymore. Who knows, with a diligent search we may be able to dig a few up.
