Journalism had failed in America?
The political press should be the public's first line of defense when it comes to assessing who is deviating from historic norms and practices, who is risking serious damage to the nation, whose positions are based in irrational phobias and ignorance rather than data and reason.
Instead journalists have been suckered into embracing "balance" and "neutrality" at all costs, and the consequences of their choice in an era of political extremism will only get worse and worse

I'd love to know where these so called "balanced and neutral" journalists are residing or hiding out. They sure aren't anywhere here in North America. Journalists in North America no longer provide unvarnished fact and information - they provide their personal political slant on all issues. It's why journalism is below politicians and used-car salespeople in the trust and respect scale.
