An editor of a European quality newspaper once said to someone “it’s not enough to have a good story; it also has to be sold, and someone has got to buy it.” So journalism lives and dies in the marketplace, like anything else in market democracy. This is what causes ‘bad journalism.’ This pressures to buy and sell, leads to mass conformity, rather than quality. It has serious consequences for journalism. Simply put, the values of the marketplace influence and control the nature and quality of the journalism. And this isn’t just happening in the US, it’s a global disease, especially now as democracy fades away.
