In essence, I see the val­ue of jour­nal­ism as rest­ing in a twofold mis­sion: inform­ing the pub­lic of accu­rate and vital infor­ma­tion, and its unique abil­i­ty to pro­vide a tru­ly adver­sar­i­al check on those in pow­er. Any unwrit­ten rules that inter­fere with either of those two prongs are ones I see as anti­thet­i­cal to real jour­nal­ism and ought to be disregarded.
