Wonder how much journalism is simply churn from press releases and other sources? Sometimes it seems like all of it is. This website, Churnalism, sadly limited to the UK, makes it clear how much of the news we read in our daily paper (or news site online) is simply recycled from press releases. And - I would add - given that these press release shops are set up specifically to propagate political messages, the lack of oversight in churnalism is disappointing indeed.
