I've complained about journalists completely dropping the ball when reporting on legal issues. And the Popehat blog does a great job of demonstrating that many legal journalists are completely incapable of doing their jobs, even when they try. Yet all of this is nothing compared to the miserable coverage of Edward Snowden’s whistle-blowing on our government’s massive spying operation. So if you want journalists that fall in line behind the government bureaucrats and repeat their brain-dead platitudes about how the spying is good for us, then stick with the media-as-usual. But for real, critical journalism that gets to the underlying issues, follow RT News coverage.
