Um, did I miss something? All but one of these are paid with tax money. I'm down for this conversation, but this is a strange comparison.
I wish we were having a real conversation about how to fund journalism. Blow and others act like we are paying for their labor. We aren't. We are paying for truth and integrity. It is those things that are in question, and it has nothing to do with whether he should be paid.
I'm fine paying for journalism. I cancelled my subscriptions to both NYT and WaPo. Because while they try to maintain integrity around journalistic practices, they do not have strong enough values around espousing rhetoric that causes harm.
I'm fine paying for truth and integrity. I'm not fine paying for whataboutism or both-sidesism. Modern news media has decided that they aren't a part of what's going on, they just document what's happening and collect checks. Nah. We're not going for that.
