The mainstream media, especially the print media, continues to implode, but rather than attempt to change its focus (most dailies are run by liberal editorial teams) they continue to double down on their progressive ideology – which, in turn, leads to additional declines in readership.

According to a new study from the liberal Brookings Institute, a think tank, hard news in particular is facing the same kind of looming extinction as newspapers and magazines, “the result of a dramatic death spiral of reporting jobs and ads and the rise of the type of opinion journalism popular two and three centuries ago,” the Washington Examiner reported, citing the study.

“Hard news is in danger,” the study noted, which also sought to explain in detail the dramatic loss of ad revenues and employment, while raising the concern that, if no editorial employees are filtering news, then credibility will be undermined (actually, it already is – but more on that in a moment).

“These trends have left many people wondering who will collect hard news for the general public. While the Internet world has made it possible for everyone to express their opinion widely — whether they know anything or not — it has also confused readers. In the absence of supposedly neutral intermediaries such as reporters, fact-checkers, and editors, readers are having a hard time judging the credibility of what they read,” said the report.

In the absence of hard news, there appears to be more opinion journalism, said Brookings.
