American journalism collapsing?

From Michael Goodwin at New York Post

Donald Trump may or may not fix his campaign, and Hillary Clinton may or may not become the first female president. But something else happening before our eyes is almost as important: the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.

The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House. They are working hand-in-hand with what was considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.

The shameful display of naked partisanship by the elite media is unlike anything seen in modern America.More.

Reality check: The American media are not collapsing at all. They are simply becoming the Pravda/Tass of (possibly) permanent progressive government. The ultimate goal is probably public funding, like the CBC in Canada. With the expected result. 24/7 propaganda that they are paid for. And attempted suppression of rivals.

No one listens but it doesn’t matter. They will be as dim and arrogant as ever.

The reason is clear: No one needs them. As I have said elsewhere, if I need to find out crap about Trump, I can just enter “Trump” + “ex-wives” in the navbar. Meantime, the New York Times writes me every day with a once-in-lifetime subscription opportunity, on which I would not waste a cent. For the same reasons as Trump, come to think of it, wasted almost no money on these dinosaur museums.
