Jay Rosen explains why he’s done criticizing CNN:
David Carr, media columnist for the New York Times, once wrote: “By marketing itself as the most trusted name in news, CNN is and should be held to a higher standard.” I once thought that way too. But now I realize that not enough people join in Carr’s belief, inside or outside CNN. And without it there’s no traction.
I remember a time when CNN was the least embarrassing news network. Does that make me an old man?
