Nassim Nicholas Taleb on the Insecurities of Journalists

Nassim Nicholas Taleb opines that the Facts are True, the News is Fake

“… journos worry considerably more about the opinion of other journalists than that of the general public. Economic insecurity worsens the condition: journalists are currently in the most insecure profession you can find: the majority lives hand to mouth and ostracism by their friends would be terminal. Thus they become easily prone to manipulation by lobbyists, as we saw with GMOs, the Syrian wars, etc. You say something unpopular in the profession about Brexit, GMOs, Putin, and you become history. This is the opposite of business where me-tooism is penalized.”
