i'm honestly amazed that journalism and academia are still functioning against all odds in the modern world. in academia there's a strong profit incentive to overload researchers with teaching and for researchers to publish spurious results to get ahead during the rare times when they're not teaching, and a massive replication crisis in some fields, but the overall project still grinds forward on the basis of maybe 5% of what gets published (mostly in hard science and math). similar in journalism except that journalism isn't even a non-profit enterprise generally. newspapers are businesses; the administration isn't concerned with the truth. there's no incentive to bite the hand that feeds and publish shit like the panama papers. and yet journos still do it on occasion. i can't really say the project 'goes forwards' because journalism is sisyphean in a way that science ain't, but still it's amazing that good work ever gets done
