Quote Of The Day

Progressive columnist David Sirota in Twitter, trying to explain the difference between journalism and propaganda to some deliberately obtuse individuals:
Journo 101: News orgs separate ads from editorial. That doesn't mean they have NO ADS. This is not hard to understand.

Propaganda, by contrast, seamlessly melds sponsorship with content, without disclosure. Not hard to understand.

The strangeness in the title of the blockquote is due to the fact that this is a combination of two Tweets.

This isn't even elementary journalism. This is elementary citizenship. When did we stop teaching this in America?
