Author Justin Leverett reads “A Pacifist’s Defense of the Media”

Excerpt from “A Pacifist’s Defense of the Media”:

leverettIt hurts my heart a good deal every time I hear someone harshly criticize “the media.” The worst part about it, and the part that hurts the most, is that I totally understand their position. As an aspiring journalist, a self‐professed media junkie, and someone who has written articles and produced content for mass distribution in newspapers and blogs, these criticisms can feel like personal attacks. I feel compassion and empathy for the person whose professional output is being lambasted.
