A 2020 “Poem”

Media organizations with a large readership (or viewership) are powerful.
With great power comes great responsibility.
Individual media organizations are, and must be, open to critique.

Critiquing the “media” at large is nonsensical.

Media organizations are made up of journalists, who are people.
Journalists make mistakes, and fact-checkers correct them.
A media organization without both journalists and fact-checkers is not a media organization.


This poem was inspired by Biden-Harris ̶f̶o̶r̶ is president.
