We see now the extent of the perverted thinking of certain self-appointed authorities on the profession of “journalism”. According to “communications and legislative officer” Jeff Crisostomo, for example, “journalists” are people who ought to harbour more progressive views…
Just saw @jiggymanicad’s latest statements thru tweets from @rapplerdotcom. Cringe fest. You’d think that as a journalist, he would have more progressive views, but no. After he loses, he’d be more fit serving under the likes of Andanar than return to journalism. Zero credibility
Wait a minute, Mr Crisostomo, why do you stereotype “journalists” as people necessarily harbouring “more progressive views”? There are journalists who articulate conservative views too, you know. What makes you an authority on what side of the political spectrum “journalists” should be inhabiting?
And, for his part, former Inquirer editor John Nery is suggesting that this “progressive” side is the only valid side of the journalism profession and that any journalist who runs counter to this side is “betraying” his profession.
People like Crisostomo and Nery are the reasons their “side” of the journalism profession had lost all credibility — because they INSULT the intelligence of their readers.
