publish them for the whole world to read. ENDS

In a spirit of mild banter :-)

Jesse... I quit journalism a few years ago and am now struggling to finish a phd.  I am, thus, a failed journalist and a battling grad student... If the search for truth (or facts as truth) were important to journalism there would be no published media in capitalist society.
