When being interviewed by the BBC .........
 
“[A]t one point I made what I thought was the very unremarkable and uncontroversial observation that the reason why we have a free press is because national security officials routinely lie to the population in order to shield their power and get their agenda advanced,” recalled Greenwald, who said it is both the “the goal and duty of a journalist is to be adversarial to those people in power.”
According to Greenwald, the BBC reporter met his remark with skepticism.
“I just cannot believe that you would suggest that senior officials, generals in the US and the British government, are actually making false claims to the public,” he remembered being told on-air. "

I remember several years ago hearing/reading that instead of weather girls/men there would be cartoon type, attractive characters used.  They would also replace newsreaders.   This has not come about yet, but most reporters ought to be replaced by these types of characters imo for all the use they are these days.

Copy and pasting and sucking up is all most seem fit for these days.

..... and, as Greenwald says, being a mouthpiece of the people in power.

Yep that unfortunately is where we are at these days.   I have said it before, yay for the internet and some very determined people who are not afraid to speak out.   Yay.
