When did journalists have principals?
When they set up journalism schools and “professionalized”, they proclaimed journalistic principles.
Of course, human frailty guaranteed that these principles would often be honored only in the breach. What we can say, however, is that journalists in the second half of the 20th century at least made an effort.
When they’re being honest, and this is not very often, today’s progressive journalists explicitly reject the journalistic principles of the past.
