It would appear that todays Journilism student could receive their entire education in one afternoon. "Get the latest WH talking points, enter immediatly in the papers front page" Do not edit, do not question, do not deviate from what you are told>

The problem is that news organizations are staffed with journalists, not REPORTERS.
Reporters report the facts of what happened: who, what, when, where, why, etc.
Journalists are people who write journals, i.e. diaries of what they think about what happened.
Read a newspaper, and ask yourself which category the writers come from.

The problem with today's Journalists:

Many, if not most, are completely lacking in common sense; their entire life view has been shaped by Left think, which, by definition, is lacking any ties with real life experience or wisdom.

Barack Obama and his bunch are the perfect 'pied pipers' for this hood winked group of guileless useful idiots.... who have utterly FAILED the American people in their duty to inform and expose and stand for truth....

deceiving, and being deceived... the best four word description of today's journalists in the United States...... most of them wouldn't recognize truth if it came up and bit them on the *$#&

Conservatives should welcome the decline of academia as we know it. I, for one, will celebrate its death by engaging in the same activity that characterized my four years at what some call its pinnacle– drinking a lot of Coors Light.

There is still nostalgia among conservatives, especially older ones who have forgotten what college is really like, for the idea of higher education as a rigorous venue for intellectual growth, an environment of exciting and vibrant ideas shared by wise, caring educators dedicated to the pursuit of truth.

Today, it is nothing of the sort.

For the vast majority...
