Where's The Journalism?

I ran across an interesting editorial piece presented by WFAA-TV's veteran sports anchor Dale Hansen.

Making a long story short, Hansen was upset with his television station's news management's decision to run a video clip of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. The video showed Jones in a bar trashing former Cowboys' coach Bill Parcells and former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

It is an interesting observation on the state of television news in the modern era. Unfortunately, I would have to agree that the art of journalism is fading quickly.

I should note that my observation isn't made towards KFVS-TV and Heartland News. This is more of an observation as a whole across the entire industry.
