It’s not just crappy education [although that certainly contributes], it’s that most ‘reporters’ study ‘journalism’ in college, where they’re taught not to ‘report’ facts and such but to ‘describe’ and ‘explain’ ‘narratives’ and ‘messages’ to the ignorant public. They are to become ‘journalists’, which apparently means they don’t really need to know anything except how to string together words to make a sentence. And they don’t need to understand anything at all.
The journalism majors I get in my class are second worst, only better than the education majors.
