Most journalists never look outside of the mainstream bubble for information, and they also tend to repeat what they are told by authority.
But they also don’t have time to do any digging or investigating.
It’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to holding authority to account, and has led to a big drop in public trust in the legacy media.
A version of reality has been created by the legacy news that is so far from the truth that it has become impossible for those who believe that reality to break free.
To do so would be too traumatic, and therefore—subconsciously or otherwise—journalists who create and believe in this false reality do all they can to protect it.Barry Wheedon
