WELL, THEY HAVEN’T EXACTLY BEEN COVERING THEMSELVES WITH GLORY LATELY: Pew poll: Americans hate journalists, even more than they did four years ago. “Not mentioned in the Pew story, but interesting and counterintuitive given the near-constant narrative of the last four years: business executive is the only occupation whose score went up since 2009. Granted, it’s only three points, from a paltry 21 percent who believe they contribute a lot to 24 percent, and it still resides near the bottom of the list, but it is curious that’s the one occupation trending upward as the last four years have taken a toll on every other category.”
