It’s all about the client

Whoever has heard of an independent story?”

“I report facts and write my perspective.”

“Bullshit! It is an interlinked world, and every ‘fact’ has an impact on others. We need to write what suits our interest.”

“And what is that?”

“Revenue and political goodwill. That is all we need to drive the business ahead.”

“How about journalistic ethics?”

“Which world do you come from? And who will believe your stories, if they contradict every social media post and television show? Readers need to feel good about themselves, not know facts or perspectives.”

“Yeah … ultimately, it’s all about the client”.
