    they are also supposed to translate this language into something non scientists can understand and find interesting. How are they supposed to do that when they have a couple of hours to prepare for their narrative, of which at least 60 percent goes into "finding the right images".

    If the journalists would be allowed to produce less "news" the public would actually get better products.

    The journalistic approach is dictated by the fact that they have to fill 24 hour news cycles and are supposed to be very "interesting" all the time. The demand to fill the airwaves with chatting word salads around the clock is killing everything. Aside from that, it's all cut and paste and copy and republish and image hunting.
