And the job market for journalists is actually shrinking, so I've seen first hand literaly hundred of journalists get treated like cogs. There are so many journalists with decades of being scum experience out there who can't find work, so if some rookie wants to leave, there's the door. Save one more mandatory redundancy for HR

I've worked 5 years in UK print media, I'm telling you that the people you speak to are full of shit.

I've heard sub-editors on the phone literally selling narrative as the stories are getting prep'd with 30 mins till plate

Do tabloids not exist in the UK?

And Reuters is European isn't it? I've seen some narrative shilling done by them in the past.

Maybe it's just a case of we'll intentioned people suffering from confirmation bias when they select a narrative...

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain tabloids dominate the press in the UK. Organisations like the guardian or the spectator are generally ok for day-to-day news, but when it comes to politics both have an extreme slant, similar if not worse than Fox and CNN in the states. also currently a journalism student, but American

In journalism courses, it is true that students are taught to be completely unbiased. At my old uni I was taught by a fairly well-known journalist who was once openly insulted on the air by Bill O'Reilly and in his writing certainly has a somewhat left-position, but he never once taught us to write our personal beliefs. In fact, anything in our writing resembling personal bias resulted in a severe deduction of points from him.

Now once journalists are in the workplace however, I cannot personally speak for to a great extent, but I would think most would at least be doing their best to maintain the Journalistic code of Ethics.

Also, perhaps integrity is easier to have when you're at the top of the system than when you're just a cog.

I also have a lot of contacts who have previously left my course and are now in low and mid level jobs in the industry who express similar opinions. People are under strict constraints and are often pushed for getting stories, but nobody is 'forced' into doing anything, and with the multi-skill nature of the work environment people can no longer just be treated like 'cogs' as you put it. Integrity is a strongly upheld value throughout whole organisations here, and is written in their statement. Like I said it might be different in the US, but that's not how it works here.

Wait till you graduate from la-la land classrooms and into the real world of journalism.

Your chosen profession is a corrupt den of snakes, switch while you still can. I've seen many journalists escape the industry by going into creative writing, hopefully that is a good alternative for you.

Are you employed at a news corporation yet? I would hazard to guess that what you are taught may be different from what you are forced to do.

No but I'm taught by people who have held high ranking positions in large news organisations across the globe. Admittedly though this is in the UK, our media is considerably better than the shit heap they call journalism in the US.
