Abstract

Can we stop talking about ‘the media’? We’re all in this together. Post-Trump, post-Truth, post-Brexit. It really is time to end this worshipping at a broken shrine. As a journalist, I would secretly love the professional news industry to have the power that idealists, cynics and bystanders ascribe to ‘the mainstream media’. But it ain’t so. The politicians and public now (help) create the monster they revile.
