Can democracy survive without journalism?
I think part of the challenge of providing proofs here is the bigness and complexity of concepts like 'democracy' and 'free press.' Identity crisis, indeed. I wish there was more public discourse about the varieties and dimensions and degrees of democracy. We so often fall into a habit of referring to it a singular entity.

Can democracy survive without journalism?
I always appreciate critical public discourse about journalism. I think overall, I disagree with you, Sid - but perhaps I agree in this sense: it is very hard to find good journalism. But like Lejan, I believe that journalism has always struggled, and not always succeeded, to be more than public relations for hire. Certainly some news agencies have done better than others. And certainly some reporters have done better than others. Just like good science, good investigative journalism needs to find better ways to acknowledge and resist structural bias. And as critiques of journalism, I think we have a duty to quantify our concerns with hard data. That's no small chore. I am very much interested to see what happens to 'journalism' in the next couple of decades. There's so much potential.
