“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.” ~ George Orwell
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this, Orwell. Elephant isn’t journalism yet…but we’ll get there. The world needs truth, just as a friend needs truth. Truth can be positive, or it can be critical. Either way, it’s love. What the world…needs now…is journalism…sweet journalism.
Look it up: the fourth estate. Thomas Jefferson: a democracy can’t function without an informed, active citizenry.
Journalism must be separated from advertising. It must be independent of corporate influence. If it can’t be, it must be transparent.
