When I see the amount of ineptitude and errors that abound in TV news and newspapers, I really wonder if the journalists behind it ever went to school! It can range from partially inaccurate information, to that which is completely wrong ! Do they ever verify what they are saying/writing? And for sure, they missed geographical classrooms! Each time they try to be pedagogic and use maps to explains things, there is always mistakes! They can't even place countries correctly!!! Are they playing darts when it comes to place name of cities on a map? Seriously, Miss South Carolina Teen USA, was right about the need of maps for people out there in our nation...
Also, it makes me laugh, when journalists quote their sources, and say... Google, Twitter, or Facebook! As if what you read on social networks can be trusted!
And about the Internet, News sites are a joke! My ten years son writes better!
So really, when one becomes a journalist, is it because he has failed everything else?!

Journalism has been swept by the arrival of the Internet, and social networks. Is it good or bad? I can't say. You get find more valuable and accurate information online, but it's lost in the middle of thousands fake ones. And the Internet is also a "great" too for misinformation...

I see this comment was posted 2 years ago, and all I can tell is that things get worse.
All is a matter of charisma, if you are popular, you can tell everything you want, people will believe you...

No hard feelings toward journalists, but it seems that today, anyone can take the title of "journalist", however, it does not make anyone a "good" journalist...
