John Oliver on Journalism

Back on July 14th I wrote a blog post about my frustrations with the state of the newspaper industry and how the term “generating copy” had replaced writing. Since then John Oliver on Last Week Tonight released this video on the state of journalism which echoed a lot of the same frustrations.

Of course, Last Week Tonight did it bigger and louder and with more jokes, but the video lays out the sad truth of the industry.
