Offenses include lying and fabricating, doctoring photos, plagiarism, conflicts of interest, falling for hoaxes, and overt bias. Some are hilarious, such as an action figure doll being mistaken for a real soldier. Some are silly, such as reporting on a baseball game watched on TV. Some are more serious.
I leave it to you to judge whether the internet damaged “journalism’s ability to do its job professionally”, as Marvin Kalb accuses, or if the internet has in fact helped expose an already damaged “profession”.
There are two central problems. First, the media thinks that it is objective and that the perfect journalist would never take sides, even to choose between a psycho killer and the journalist’s own child. They do not realize that inventing a moral middle ground between good and evil is to conceal evil, and to partake of evil. Second, the media is culturally Marxist, buying into the Gramscian/Stalinist program of political correctness that fills them with self-loathing and loathing of western civilization, and of civilization and humanity in general.
