MSNBC producer, Ariana Pekary, published a scathing resignation letter about the lack of real journalism at MSNBC, which instead concentrates on biased stories to push their narratives. Here is a short excerpt:
“We are a cancer and there is no cure,” a successful and insightful TV veteran said to me. “But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”
As it is, this cancer stokes national division, even in the middle of a civil rights crisis. The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings.
Not surprisingly, those who live in the news bubble on the left are unlikely to have heard the story:
Is the producer’s letter an example of speaking truth to power?
Or is it not newsworthy since it is simply stating the obvious?
