What does a journalist know about anything?

The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that a typical journalist has about the same level of knowledge and education as someone who teaches Grade VII. Their specialty is listening, summarising and writing down what others have said or done. There is no in depth knowledge of anything required yet not only do we filter our news through these people we actual pay attention to their views.

This cannot end well.
