Advocacy Journalism

Over the past 15 years, as newspaper circulation has declined, more and more people are turning to Advocacy Journalism via websites, talk radio, cable TV, and blogs to get their news. The problem is that many of these blogs and websites are biased, have an agenda, don’t do much fact checking, aren’t edited, and aren’t held accountable when they get facts wrong. TV networks like MSNBC and FOX News and talk radio talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have a clearly biased agenda. Yet, many people rely on Advocacy Journalism as their main source of news.

Perhaps most importantly, Advocacy Journalism is polarizing our country.
