Jay Rosen discovers that journalism is a form of culture

I tried to clarify.
"It's not a model of the press but of normative language and reference in any social group. Ask an anthropologist.
And compare Hallin's model with this one. It's more dynamic.
Hallin doesn't think to include time."
You can't escape the circle, all you can do is try to remind yourself that it exists. Awareness begins in self-awareness, and delusion begins in the assumption that you are what you claim to be, regardless of what others say. Barbarism is not caring one way or the other, which has the advantage of being neither delusional nor dishonest.
