Maybe not. What about your editor? The publisher? The higher up
the chain you go, the more influence comes from the advertisers, and
the less from reporters.

You could just let your industry defend itself, though I don't think
it needs it in any case. I haven't ever spent even a minute trying to
defend my industry.

I don't see why you would take criticism of Big Media personally.
There are many industries in which individual employees opinions
are not representative of the employer's. Probably *most*
industries, in fact.
