Why is the media so consistently bad? The industry refuses to address its longstanding quality issue. If news organizations were, say, auto companies, they'd have recalled their entire fleets by now - with the exception of a single car here and there - and gone out of business.

You'd be astonished if you fact-checked a news organization's daily output. Close to 100% of the work would have at least one factual error. Framing issues are rampant. Most assumptions are false, yet built into so-called objectivity. Reporters and their bosses by and large ignore inaccuracies, falsehoods and institutional bias when pointed out; they just don't care. Biggest hypocrites on the planet.
