A few weeks ago, I went to the offices of the Associated Press and the New York Times and asked them to rate their news stories from January through September 2017.
I was expecting a straightforward, straightforward assessment: the AP had changed in the last year or so.
What I got instead was a series of charts showing that the AP’s news coverage has undergone significant shifts over the past year.
As a journalist, I would have been more inclined to give a thumbs-up.
And, of course, I was right.
So, what’s happened?
The AP’s shift has been driven by a number of factors.
First, the AP changed its reporting methods.
It has a different reporting process for the president and the vice president.
Second, its newsroom has changed.
In the past, there were several reporters covering the president at the same time, which meant that stories were rarely fact-checked.
The new process requires reporters to ask specific questions of the president’s actions and policies and then report them as they occur.
Third, its staffs have changed.
The AP had roughly 1,200 reporters and analysts before the election.
Today, its workforce is almost 1,600.
Its reporters work from home, but they can report on topics outside their comfort zones.
Fourth, and perhaps most significantly, the press has changed its mission.
In recent years, the newsroom had become a place for political reporters and news outlets to go after stories they found to be important.
But it has become a venue for people who do not believe that the news media has an obligation to report the news.
Fifth, and most importantly, the reporters and editors have changed as well.
In an article published in the Washington Post in May, reporter David Fahrenthold wrote about how, for example, the editors at the Associated, ABC and NBC News outlets are all “deeply conservative.”
But Fahrenhold is also correct that many of the journalists who cover the Trump administration and its administration are also deeply conservative.
In fact, the vast majority of the news organizations that have left the AP and the Times are conservative.
In fact, in a new poll, more than half of Americans believe the news outlets should be fired.
Sixth, in the era of Trump, the American public is more accepting of news outlets that do not follow a particular narrative.
In a 2017 poll, about six in 10 Americans agreed that “journalism is too often political.”
But a 2016 Pew Research Center survey found that that number had fallen to less than half.
This year, the Pew survey found a significant decline in public support for mainstream news outlets, particularly those that report on politics or other issues, like the Associated press.
Finally, the media is becoming more partisan.
When the AP decided to change its reporting processes in 2016, many outlets were critical of the change.
They argued that the changes made the news more partisan and biased.
In addition, many journalists at the AP, the New Times and the Washington Times have criticized the changes.
In other words, the journalism establishment is increasingly willing to allow conservative viewpoints to become newsworthy in order to maintain the status quo.
The Washington Post and The New York Post are among the most prominent outlets that have taken this approach.
For the last decade, the establishment has been very willing to change the news agenda in order for the American people to accept conservative news outlets as news outlets.
It’s not a radical idea, but it is becoming increasingly unpopular with the public.
It is no longer the news that the people want, but the news they want.
