Journalism: a post modern future ??

Here is what a friend of mine, a Journalist just said:

“Just got in trouble with my work for starting a petition for Leave voters to sign if they felt they had been misinformed and wanted to change their vote, then sharing it on social media. Apparently it ruins the impartiality of my work. Just felt upset for being told not to have an opinion;”

Is that a Journalism??
You tell me.

Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.
