The worst are the ones with pink flags.More good old days bullshit. The growth of the muckrakers was largely a response to the editorial weakness of newspapers before the turn of the 20th century, beholden to both political parties and advertising. Sound familiar?TwoLegged said:In newspapers, the old principle used to be that there was a clear separation relationship between editorial decision-making and advertising sales; the two operate independently. That separation is now breaking down, as it has long done in magazines.
It's always been an issue, and there will never be a good answer for it. A big part of my disdain for the word 'journalist'...
