Comments on: Serving up the Supreme Court dough before it’s baked http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2012/06/28/serving-the-supreme-court-dough-before-its-baked/ Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:54:39 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: sylvan http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2012/06/28/serving-the-supreme-court-dough-before-its-baked/#comment-5182 Mon, 02 Jul 2012 11:14:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/?p=1017#comment-5182 So why don’t journalists, which in my mind do not include any of the entertainers at Fox, set professional standards for the profession, if they consider it a profession? All healthcare professions police themselves fairly effectively, as do other professions such as law, accounting, etc. Journalists complain continually about their decline, though repeated polls show an incredible unmet demand for quality news reporting. If journalists had standards, such as separating comment from news reporting and clearly labelling it as commentary; defining appropriate means and methods of news gathering; establishing professional credentialing of journalists, etc., then maybe we would not be in danger of losing a free and undoctored press. So journalists, do us all a favor, and stop whining to us and clean up what was once a profession.

I doubt that was just luck.

Both have failed their audiences but in different ways; FOX has a global history of illicitly ferreting out news before its safe to print or broadcast; their speakers are not worth watching and I no longer do so. CNN is simply a failing source due to lack of ability to compete. My guess is that they will soon be subsumed by guess who: FOX. My advice to journalists of all stripes: Get the facts clearly understood before opening your mug!

They did not know that talking head Cable channels would be racing to be the first to declare heads or tails….. and they did not play the game hoping for the outcome they received? Yeah…the court was political a few minutes before the decision… but after that they were aces.

The Supreme Court ruling re. Affordable Care Act happened to be a case when they created news with the wrong headline.

As to not having time – they had the same amount of time to dwell on the law and its aspects as the Justices had. A year. x m.r
