Boiling Frogs Post: Filling the gaps in in-depth coverage

JoeLauriaEndorsementThe crisis in journalism was brought on mostly by industry consolidation and by media owners in denial about wasting billions on consultants, who recommended firing reporters and displacing serious news with puzzles and celebrity-worship, even of business and political leaders. The public must depend on the press for protection against abuses of power by those leaders, not to be distracted from them.

Beneath news of political campaigns, bills in Congress and the latest wars is a deep politics that is going largely uncovered: first, because its participants try to keep it secret and second, because Resources for in-depth reporting have been sharply cut back.    

Amateurish blogs, though raising issues the established media doesn’t, can’t be a substitute for serious journalism. This site is an attempt to fill the gaps in in-depth coverage. I appeal to readers to generously support it.

  1. The caring and sharing hyper-local perspective defines ALL forms of broadcast media as being sensationalist propaganda?

  2. I do agree with that sentiment. I’m not a journalist. Over the years, I have gathered enough information to be considered EXTREMELY dangerous to the powers that be. They don’t want NONE of this… 🙂 However, I’m not a journalist. I have done some “footwork” over the years. Calling certain people… reaching out to whistleblowers… wink wink… emailing certain people… but I don’t have the resources to do what a real journalist does.
