Third Quarter Report

This week Yahoo News reprinted an Esquire article celebrating uncivilized, vigilante behaviour. There’s no longer even the pretense of journalistic impartiality.

Over the past three months, the shameful state of the media has been a frequent topic on this blog (see the links list, below).

The moral of these stories is that it’s no longer safe to assume that news organizations such as The Economist, National Geographic, the Washington Post, the BBC, or Canada’s CBC are delivering the straight goods. Everything now gets reported through the prism of a particular worldview.

That worldview leans sharply left and is drearily predictable. These are the most smug, most self-indulgent, least curious journalists in history.

Some of the 115 posts I’ve published this year have been brief. Others have been longer, and have required extensive background research. For this reason, I’ll be writing two posts a week going forward (Mondays and Wednesdays), rather than three. A sustainable pace is preferable to burnout.

To those of you who make a monthly financial contribution to this blog: A thousand thank yous. Your support keeps me going.
