"Rock journalism"

“Rock journalism is people who can’t write interviewing people who can’t talk for people who can’t read” (Frank Zappa) – Comment

Has the practice of journalism in our country reached a state of rock journalism? Publication after publication we read about interviews that we conducted with Public figures who can’t talk sense at all, can either read. Have we reached the age where Rock journalism has hit our shelves?

Look at what the phone hacking scandal has turned out to be. I sometimes ask myself if that is what frank referring to? Rock journalism at its best and it is sure having a great impact on the media industry, and thereby leaving thousands of people jobless.
Rock journalism? What does it mean to you?

It was a statement not a fact.“Rock journalism is people who can’t write interviewing people who can’t talk for people who can’t read”, is Frank Zappa's opinion. How is rock journalism making peolpe unemployed? #confused
