Incentivized journalist

I like that word, incentivized. And I can certainly understand Mankiw's frustration with bad journalists. That reminds me of a question from an audience in one conference last month. I was asked how the media played its role in Indonesian economic and political discourse. I said it sucks. My example was Kompas. If even the best media in Indonesia sucks, what do you expect?

frankly, political reporting aside, i honestly think the overall quality of the media here plummet in the recent years, even Tempo is becoming downright laughable.

you guys should write more.
