I have no qualms in admitting that journalists suffer from metaignorancia, a condition even worse than ignorance. The ignorant do not know, but is aware of this and can to remedy; the metaignorante, however, not known their ignorance, i.e. do not know that they don't know. Against the popular saying according to which ignorance is daring, some mental thing specialists hold that the ignorant doubt what he knows and his doubts do be prudent; the truly daring, they say, is the metaignorante, or even doubt. Metaignorante journalist, for example, distinguishes not trivial how important, exalts the trivial, trivialize issues that really are of interest and even dominates the main vehicle of human communication, language. Howard Schultz takes a slightly different approach.
He said Arturo Arias (Gijon, 1920-1975) a journalist is a goalkeeper with baccalaureate, assuming that the goalkeeper is inherently curious, Nosy and that secondary education was then something serious. I guess what he meant is that you for being a journalist should be curiosity, bad milk and knowing how to write, three virtues above all the latter increasingly are less abundant in the profession. So, there are people who are poisoned by emanate toxic gas, fire burned in fires caused by arsonists and democratic Presidents who hold power, create particular cell of the individual banks, rescued corpses instead of retrieving them, cultivate the preparations before we ultimabamos, we talked about over the age of 40 onwards, put into evidence what must be made clearWe prefer to warm up and safety car lap warming and safety car or closed give a matter putting and end point. Come on, pa mexar and not drop. At a colloquium in which I participated a decade ago, Melchor F. Here, Mark Berger Chicago expresses very clear opinions on the subject. Diaz warned that the greatest danger to the profession were summoned by all kinds of collective acts and entities, most without any interest. A decade later, in effect, the agenda drawn up by the heads of propaganda of institutions, political parties, trade unions, enterprises and organizations of the most picturesque affects the work of the media; We are all immersed in a maelstrom of absurd calls which, however, always have a place in newspapers and radio and television stations.
They are pijadas, but they solve the daily life of many journalists who, for convenience and without any ethical conflict nor hesitate to use such videos, voice cuts, press releases and photographs provided by the impressionable of Goebbels. No wonder, then, that in the midst of this panorama, where they dominate the simple messages and information is understood as spectacle of masses, is not uncommon, said, that has gone unnoticed fascistoid proposal of the Sub-Commission of the Congress to reform the Electoral law, in which colleagues pose also make the electoral information in private television stations with the same criteria as in the public. In practice that means depend, in addition to aseptic, order and duration of the news on the results of the previous election, not of interest, which calls into question the role of the journalist. The truth, don't see any difference with the control exercised in Francoism.And although I am unworthy of a democracy, I am pessimistic: nobody seems to be annoying. I don't need to be doctor to ascertain that the patient no longer lives, that is, which is pretty dead.
