The prognosis for American journalism is not good. In due course, the cancerous forces of Google, Facebook and algorithmic optimization will complete the terminal ravaging of the journalistic trade from the inside, chewing through it vital organs one newsroom at a time, hollowing out its traditions and lore. Journalists and editors will grieve the demise of their beloved calling, which once nourished the sacred democratic principle of holding those in power to a sustained public accounting — and, on occasion, created a kind of widely accessible art form.
