21. I am sorry, but the entire philosophy of what constitutes real journalism does not
mean that any journalist or any news media entity near a power center gets to slant its news and editorialize inside its news pieces, for the sake of protection of the local industries.
In fact, due to the excesses of industries, a journalist and a news media has more responsibility per covering the local power base than otherwise.
Should a coal town news paper not cover the flagrant violations of the local mining company?
If we excuse the news media with the thinking that, "Gosh oh gee, these editors and journalists have to rub elbows with the hoi polloi of that industry when they go to parties and other social events, so of course they should be nice to them in covering the new," then we don't really have journalism. We simply have news hacks.
