The Problem Of Journalism

Journalism exercises excessive control on our lives. People are filled with an insatiable desire to have an expert’s knowledge on everything, and this is a need that journalism fulfills—the news reports are designed to make the people feel that they are full of knowledge. The politicians come and go, but journalism is always there to tell people what the issues are and what constitutes knowledge. The nature of journalism is such that it coerces the people to focus on a single issue and forget about everything else, and even on this issue, it mostly disseminates incorrect information—so instead of making the people knowledgeable, it makes them confused and dumb. Exposure to too much journalism is not good for a society.
