There’s a reason this web property isn’t even as popular as Star Wars. That is because we eschew the formal standards of journalism that have made that profession the most trusted in America. You may have not realized that reporting guidelines had been ratified, though one could easily enough intuit their influence behind the polished demeanor and cool rationality of an MSNBC anchor. Of course we’re untrammeled by such bonds of decorum, and so are at liberty to dazzle readers with meretricious mendacity. While we practice sophistry, lies, and diversion, our media competition is locked into a straitjacket of duty-bound honesty and all-sides objectivity. It’s a completely tilted playing field.
But there’s no cause to trust assertions here. View the Society of Professional Journalists’ Oath of Fealty for yourself.
Diversity – Guidelines for Countering Racial, Ethnic and Religious Profiling
Use language that is informative and not inflammatory;
This is why you never anymore see inflammatory terms such as Racist, bigot, anti-semite, and white supremacist. Seriously, how long’s it been? 10, 20 seconds?
— Portray Muslims, Arabs and Middle Eastern and South Asian Americans in the richness of their diverse experiences;
— Use photos and features to demystify veils, turbans and other cultural articles and customs.
Cover the victims of harassment, murder and other hate crimes as thoroughly as you cover the victims of overt terrorist attacks.
You know, it’s the covert terrorist attacks that truly grate. And the thorough media coverage of his murder is why every American now knows the name Logan Tipton.
Make an extra effort to include olive-complexioned and darker men and women, Sikhs, Muslims and devout religious people of all types in arts, business, society columns and all other news and feature coverage…
I doubt they mean extra inclusion in the area of coverage where darker men natively excel. Though the point here–again–is establishing objective unbiased guidelines for professional reporting. Nothing but the unvarnished veritas.
Seek out experts on military strategies, public safety, diplomacy, economics and other pertinent topics who run the spectrum of race, class, gender and geography.
Obviously General BN covers many of these as classily as most others sought for media input. And Liberia has a constitution just like ours. So if that charter is followed to the letter, we can expect cucks flocking to its shores as per expressed pieties.
When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity.
Right. White supremacists. I suppose mentioning the ocean of inferioricists is out of the question. Though it seems like only minutes ago we were reading somber injunctions against inflammatory language. But that’s a minor oversight. The point is when a little white boy is butchered in his bed by a black, the topic conscientious reporters are professionally compelled to discuss is this:
Do not imply that kneeling on the floor praying, listening to Arabic music or reciting from the Quran are peculiar activities.
Ululating around the family mizmar is just part of being American.
Regularly seek out a variety of perspectives for your opinion pieces.
That’s a fair policy. For instance, political roundtables should feature perspectives from both jewish neocons and jewish shitlibs, with opinions on whites that range all the way from Hitler-nymph to hate-goober.
Check your coverage against the five Maynard Institute for Journalism Education fault lines of race and ethnicity, class, geography, gender and generation.
Apparently we’ve neglected the five Maynard Institute fault lines along with every other standard of journalistic integrity. Perhaps The Kakistocracy will just never have the integrity of the American media.
