Journalistic Nosedive, … Ouch!
Tim Dorsey, a former journalist with the Tampa Tribune saw the industry changing in time to become the author of one of the United States most successful multi-multi-multi and more novel series starring a pleasant but somewhat out of the ordinary not quite but almost super hero, Serge A. Storms.
The novels are chock full of Florida facts and trivia, action, comedy and quite a bit of black justice. More, they deal in a quotidian fashion with important social commentary and criticism.
In a novel published in 2015, Shark Skin Suite, on pages 124 through 129 (paperback edition), he touches on the precipitous decline of the profession that used to be called journalism. Hard to believe how much worse it’s gotten in just over one year.
