In the end, with the president re-elected, everything seems fine until Motss finds out that the media are crediting the president's win to a tired campaign slogan of "Don't change horses in mid-stream" rather than Motss's hard work. Motss announces that he only did this for "the credit" and will call the media to "set them straight," despite Brean's warning that he is "playing with his life.

" Motss refuses to back down, so Brean reluctantly has him killed and makes it look as if he had a heart attack. Colbert Bush Roast Transcript - Stephen Colbert Bush Transcript.

Wetenschap13 januari 2012 8:00 |De angst onder journalisten om hun journalistieke autonomie te verliezen is vaak groter dan hun wil om het publiek en de kritiek die er bestaat op hun functioneren serieus te nemen.

Dat zegt communicatiewetenschapper Yael de Haan in haar proefschrift ‘Between professional autonomy and public responsibility. Accountability and responsiveness in Dutch media and journalism’, waarop zij gisteren promoveerde. De laatste jaren lijkt de kritiek op media en journalistiek in Nederland toe te nemen, constateert De Haan, werkzaam bij de Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) en als mediadeskundige lid van de Raad voor de Journalistiek.

Uit zowel publieke als politieke hoek krijgen zij het verwijt feiten te overdrijven, hypes te creëren en misbruik te maken van hun macht. De Haan onderzocht hoe Nederlandse media hebben gereageerd op de kritiek op hun functioneren. Toch blijkt de journalistieke praktijk weerbarstig, zo stelt De Haan. Het zijn net mensen.
