Word: Journalism

Just stumbled upon this, which seems oddly applicable to current discussions
Journalism has never been the art of the ideal. Its basic problem is that it attempts to perpetrate the truth, relying for financial support on readers, listeners, and advertisers, who have relatively little interest in the pursuit of this goal. It's a bit like a priest being supported by the proceeds of a whorehouse. - Sam Smith, 1960
