Seymour Hersh, who won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the My Lai massacre, takes apart the “pathetic” American media in this piece. 

"I’ll tell you the solution, get rid of 90% of the editors that now exist and start promoting editors that you can’t control. I saw it in the New York Times, I see people who get promoted are the ones on the desk who are more amenable to the publisher and what the senior editors want and the trouble makers don’t get promoted. Start promoting better people who look you in the eye and say ‘I don’t care what you say’."
