Response: "Goodnight, and Good Luck" by Tony Karon, Al Jazeera America

This is a response to Al Jazeera America's farewell: "Goodnight, and Good Luck" by Tony Karon

In a time in which our social and political differences are violently smashed together along a faultline, televised in the style of reality TV by way of national marketing campaigns for sound bite driven would-be presidents, championed by a news system that is increasingly oglioarch-ized and disgustingly sensationalized, it was nice to have a mainstream news source looking at the stories behind the clickbate, examining the ideas and power structures underneath what is making our news.

In short: it was nice to have journalists.

Do yourself a favor this morning and read their farewell.
