Journalist, Delegate-Elect Danica Roem Demolishes NBC: “Your digital team needs an ethics refresher”; “Journalism demands better than this”

Good for longtime journalist and Delegate-elect Danica Roem for calling out NBC’s lapses in accuracy and journalist ethics. For my part, I have found “journalistic ethics” to be largely an oxymoron over the years, for instance the frequent failure by corporate media outlets to link/credit blogs like this one.  Also, I’d point to the media’s inattention to accuracy – whether factual or grammatical – and its bizarre fetish for “both sides” false equivalency as major, pretty much fatal, flaws in “journalism” today. Oh, and how about the obsession with sensationalistic, “freak show,” “if it bleeds it leads,” “hey there’s a fire somewhere!,” “horse race” coverage? In the end, I agree 100% with long-time journalist and now Delegate-elect Danica Roem that “journalism deserves better than this.” As do the rest of us.

P.S. Also check out the following tweet exchange between Lt. Governor-elect Justin Fairfax and “Gentlewoman” Danica Roem. Great stuff; anti-LGBT bigot and soon-to-be EX-Delegate “Sideshow Bob” Marshall must be ripping the hair out of his head right about now. LOL
