    Indeed, the media has a huge responsibility that they partisanly fall short on delivering.

    Often it seems that the editorial board's reasoning in one way or another amounts to being too invested in having their readers/listeners/viewers end up with the right conclusion.

    This is the environment in which we end with politics where people can't agree on the basic facts of reality and consequently the political system breaks.


    If you don't pay for news, you exacerbate the problem as you underpin the need for news media to get views for advertising revenue at any cost.

    Without a well-functioning fourth estate, a democracy is ready to be plucked by a number of different groups.
