Journalism is not Dead

“Journalism is dead.”

Popularized by Sean Hannity, this silly meme has been regurgitated exponentially across the Interwebs. It is inaccurate at best. More importantly, such lazy assertions dismiss the work of diligent fact-gatherers like Michelle Malkin.

Malkin was interviewed briefly today by Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends. Watch as she does the work Americans won’t by reporting on the connections between George Soros, ACORN, Obama and ABC’s health care infomercial. Published online and in print, Malkin’s piece details facts that may never be mentioned on MSNBC, CNN, et al.

I believe Michelle Malkin is the archetypal new-media journalist. I envision her tiny frame standing at the edge of the laughable abyss occupied by so-called news media, armed with facts and fervor, unwilling to back down. Raising her mighty pen-sword, she plunges piles of journalists into professional obscurity. THIS IS SPARTA JOURNALISM!

No journalism as we knew it died in 2008 and we must never forget that.

Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, a new form of journalist/jounalism will arise & become more poweful than the MSM. It has already started in the form of blogs, youtube, twitter, facebook, etc. Stories that the government run media won’t report will continue to be exposed through these venues.

Hopefully, in time, the majority of Americans will realize that propaganda from the MSM is not news.

Is it plausible to speculate that Swine Flu is a Soros-funded operation also? What better way to scare people into a healthcare boondoggled with the darkest of motives.

I don’t put anything past this group.
