Wait, do they imagine that they haven’t been doing public journalism for a few decades? Or do they not realize that the public mistrust is largely due to the fact they’ve been doing so stealthily? That is, they have been claiming independence and objectivity while absorbing many of the public journalism tenets.

I grant that it would be an improvement to have the practice of public journalism openly acknowledged.
