We live in a chilling era of herd politics and media driven by emotional attachments to political party and nation.
We have often said Consortium News is independent from government and corporations because it is funded only by its readers and viewers. But we have another kind of independence too.
Our editorial viewpoint and our writers are independent of emotional attachments to any political party, ideology or nation.
Too many views today are driven by emotional dependence on a group or an idea, rather than by reason.
Journalism can’t have any such attachments.
