Who would they be in real life?
How to put this? The people below are CNN anchors. Anchors are not real journalists. Not really. They only play journalists on TV. Anyone who’s ever worked in TV news knows this. Okay. Maybe they used to be journalists. Can we just not argue about this? So here’s the question: who would these people be outside the world of pretend—outside the weird and shiny world of television?

We need you now more than ever. In turbulent times, it is crucial that reliable media remains available to everyone. That is why we depend on your support to keep our journalism accessible and independent. From economic uncertainty to political polarization, the challenges our society is facing today are too important for half-truths.
At The Walrus, the future of journalism is funded by engaged citizens like you. Together, we can preserve the integrity of Canadian media and ensure that our democracy thrives. Will you join us?
With thanks, Jennifer Hollett Executive Director, The Walrus
