What Does the Word “News” Mean These Days Anyway?

The Heritage Foundation is a conservative so-called think tank (as in the American Taliban). Check out this flash from Politico’s Dylan Byers about its new venture:

The Heritage Foundation, a powerful right-wing think tank, is planning to launch a new news service that will cater to a conservative audience, sources familiar with the organization’s plans told POLITICO on Wednesday.

Heritage will officially announce the project on Thursday in an embargoed report by Bloomberg News, the sources said.

I’m thinking this “new news service” should be in quotes because the Heritage Foundation’s “new news service” won’t be a “new news service” at all.  It will be a well-funded propaganda bomb.  So yo, Dylan, think about practicing journalism if you call yourself a journalist.
