Without the reporting & analysis of independent journalists on Twitter, USA would still be in total lockdown. Hard to find anyone in legacy media who has fairly scrutinized the pandemic. Our press is broken. Best journos are far removed from institutions like NYT, WaPo, CNN, etc.
In fact, real journalism is *discouraged* at legacy press institutions, which only hire ppl who subscribe to a very rigid, particular worldview. These folks wouldn't dare report hard facts if those facts lead to a discovery that threatened to upset their colleagues & associates.
The NYT, The Bezos Post, leftwing cable tv, etc have 1 goal in mind, & that's dethroning the president of the United States. Everything else comes 2nd. If lockdown helps democrats (it won't, they're miscalculating) & 330MM Americans have to suffer, then so be it, they conclude.
Exactly right. The press largely acts as stenographers for aspiring tyrants. If you're extra nice, you may get a nice spoon-fed scoop, & a journalism prize in future!

Just look at Trump-Russia pulitzer recipients. They won an award for acting as typists!
