Howard, this idea of the media being there "not only to ‘educate, entertain and inform’ - but also to sell newsprint and advertising space" is somehow troblesome to me. As a professor, I see the media as my allies, as one of my best ways to disseminate my research and opinion amongst society. Of course, there is good, bad and ugly media, but I'd never classify serious media as outlets whose goal is "to sell newsprint and advertiding space". In doing so I'd say we are seriously confusing means and ends. It sounds as if we were "shooting the messenger"...
