I think this is good journalism because it discusses the story behind the story.

It made me see the situation in a new way and had a great deal of relevant historical context. I especially appreciated the list of reporters who were fired for voicing controversial opinions.

This is an important topic. I believe we need more historical context for stories, and this story is an example of that.

There is still so much I personally don't know about what happened. I feel like many of these stories are just the tip of the iceberg.
