Well, yes, but…..

What is the point of the media if it does not see its primary task as gathering information to hold power to account?

The primary purpose of the media is to make money for those who own it. Just like any other business.

  1. This is the beauty of self-interest. By journalist making a living the by-product is “to hold power to account”.

  2. Ah, but MSM always tow the line when governments start cracking the whip or threaten a D notice or a judge gets uppity and slaps a gag on free speech. Thank goodness for the blogosphere and the Drudge Report.
