RedState editor Erick Erickson on Wednesday called for conservative media outlets to return to the basic tenets of journalism -- who, what, where, when, why and how -- instead of working to highlight controversies, no matter how trivial.
"I think conservative media is failing to advance ideas and stories," Erickson wrote on his site. "Certainly part of that is because the general media has an ideological bias against conservatives, which makes it harder for the media to take our views seriously. But many conservatives are, instead of working doubly hard to overcome that bias, just yelling louder about the same things. The echo in the chamber has gotten so loud it is not well understood outside the echo chamber in the mainstream press and in the public. It translates only as anger and noise, neither of which are conducive to the art of persuasion."
