There is no more "great journalism". There comes a point when you have to face the truth about journalism.

Journalists are like the brat in this viral video who will eat an onion, insisting that it is an apple. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORdkyI43IRE?rel=0]

She is suffering, but no way is she going to admit the obvious.

That's the state of journalism.

They are antiquated, reactionary, primitive, corrupted, and kaput.

So when you have a dead profession tainted by denial and narcissism, they will scream that everything is wonderful.

You see the implosion. Dean Baquet, Executive Editor of the New York Times, will talk about a "crisis" in journalism, and how this is its "Golden Age" of it.

It isn't a golden age, and we are well beyond a crisis.

When you have journalists parroting press releases, you know the profession isn't an authentic one, and when you are mandated with chronicling reality, not being authentic is a very bad thing.

Instead of looking inward, journalists are spinning a lie about "fake news" being something outside of journalism. Nice try, but I wrote the book disproving that silly hypothesis -- three times over.

But journalists cannot help themselves, always spinning what they do as such a wonderful and selfless thing.

The Chicago Sun-Times chirping that their rivals Chicago Tribune's drive to unionize is all about "doing great journalism" is laughable.

It is about saving their jobs, not realizing unionizing in a dead profession won't do the trick.

Journalists will put up with the stench of their profession's needless death rather than admit the obvious.

It is time for a change.

And the time is now...
