For John, BLUF: This campaign most of the medial are, in fact, public relations people for Democrats. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The person asking this question is Academy Award Nominated screen writer and mystery author Roger L Simon.
His plan is to give aspiring reporters a trial period and then separate them into two groups, either real journalists or flacks (public relations people).
Seems fair to me.
UPDATE: It appears that some at Trump Rallies are calling members of the Media "Presstitutes". Apparently it isn't just Roger Simon and myself.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
