An egalitarian erosion

Jim Long's day job is shooting history as it unfolds. Always a guy who can think on his feet, he offers this quick assessment. He's answering Loic LeMeur as to why we see the same images about an event across all networks.

Cost-cutting and audience flight are not uncommon phrases used in describing the state of contemporary journalism, but when the topic is specifically world events, that's just deeply disturbing.

Good thing Jim has such a buttery delivery. It makes it easier to hear the bad news.
