Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
There is a difference between a reporter and a journalist.
A reporter tells you what happened: who, what, when, and where.
The journalist tells you how he feels about it, and you should too, if you weren’t such a hateful, racist, sexist, misogynist hater who hates.
This is why people love reporters and hate journalists. This is why Trump is making points with people who agree with him that journalist and their fake news are actually enemies of the people who want accurate information to make informed decisions.
Experience on this blog shows this not to be a bad definition.
