Paid press releases now officially the news: AP announces ‘largest single expansion’ of climate reporting ‘paid for through philanthropic grants’ of $8 million
Thats only the tip of the iceberg and it’s not even the most problematic part. What I find most annoying is that newsrooms are so utterly full of activists that don’t even do it for the money. And the vast majority are yes-men/women that will go along with anything even if their spidey senses are tingling red hot just to not stick out from the crowd and it’s not even because they are evil people. They are not but they know that their careers go down the drain the moment they are less than enthusiastic about all those climate goals. Money just permeates the top layer.
Journalistic standards are now officially out the window. There will be no attempt to present a patina of objectivity, balance or unbiased news by the AP when it comes to ‘climate change.’
