Exactly!

though...
"client journalism" - what a term... *SMH*
I prefer George Orwell's take on this:
"Journalism is printing what someone does not want printed. Everything else is just public relations."

To quote Peter Oborne.

"By client journalism I mean journalism as decoration of power, or court reporting. The opposite of independent journalism."

Sure, bud. I understand what the term is supposed to mean.
Just wanted to say, I just don't like to consider this as "journalism". It's really just... advertising.

Ahhh I getcha. Calling it 'journalism' full stop is a compliment in itself.

Yep, that's it. The term seems to me like a "lipstick on a pig"-situation.

Its like companies trying to recruit 'influencers' instead of allowing critics to review their products, because influencers are uncritical of free products and companies love the cheap advertising.

There seems to be a call from Aussie MP's to get Assange out of Belmarsh and to drop the US charges against him, I wish him luck.
