5. I think CJR generally provides good mainstream criticism of the media ...

... and that what we have here is a (rather circumscribed) effort to discuss the distorting effects of reporters' self-interest.

It is possible to read this article is as a challenge: how do we make our stories "sexy enough" to obtain coverage. That may simply be a reality that we must acknowledge at present, even if we disapprove.

If "idealism" is needed to cultivate enough vision for political change, "realism" is nevertheless required to win political fights.
