“They have abdicated their role”

There are a couple of exceptions to the deplorable lack of inquiring, investigative interviewers in US broadcast journalism. Chief amongst them is a man who claims to purvey “fake news”. Last week, Jon Stewart was interviewed on NPR’s Fresh Air and repeated a thankfully-increasing-refrain that media has been subverted so that it no longer holds truth claims up to scrutiny but instead simply repeats what it’s fed.

The interview is well worth a listen. You can do that right here.
