“I actually have a physical subscription to The Economist”

Kudos! The Economist has, in my opinion, the most reliable overall coverage. I’ve caught them on a few questionable representations of the true situation as reported by a goodly collection of sources, but all in all they’re the first source for most of my news.

I think that you’re making assumptions that journalists aren’t as ethical as you are. The few I have known have been pretty serious about maintaining their journalistic integrity, and the fact that even some Fox News people have left demonstrates serious intent. I suppose what I’m criticizing in your thesis is your assumption that journalists as a group are morally inferior to you. Sure, I can see individual journalists being untruthful, but the whole community? I don’t think so.
