This was forced in front of my face as headline news on Bing, the search engine I prefer.
It is headline news because that's where the new is - on main search engines or the landing page when you log out of e-mail.
Here's the problem and I do not intend to besmirch the dead - she wasn't a journalist.
I hold myself as the bottom of the barrel metric when it comes to relevance, journalism or the media industry. I have a mere 7,000 twitter followers and this here blog. I never aimed to be nor claim to be a "journalist." And if you are a professional journalist you should have a WAAAAY larger social media pull than my pathetic ass. This "journalist" had less.
This journalist also got killed protesting which indicates to me she had an agenda and a narrative, a crusade in which she cared more about than reporting the news and actually being a journalist.
There is so much that is not said in this article about journalism and journalists I'll probably expand on it in my podcast, but for now, realize that journalism and journalists do not exist anymore. It's just a bunch of kids on the internet with pet causes, causes of which at times end up in tragic deaths that should have never occurred had you just been an actual journalist and not an activist.
