Harper's Index is an all-time fave from my all time favorite magazine, only slightly less so since Lewis Lapham left.  Here in this September issue the Index starts out by taking stats from the Pew Research Center that polled journalists about their content and discontent regardng the profession.  Here are the indexed stats:

Portion of journalists who say that journalism is bad for their emotional well-being : 1/3

Who describe the industry in negative terms : 3/4

Percentage by which journalists are more likely than the general public to think misinformation is a big problem : 21

Percentage of journalists who believe they should not let personal views affect their work : 82

Journalism is a troubled profession. Even the Left will censor and cancel if it has the power to do so. 

All of these stats were sourced from the Pew Research Center.  Check out the Pew Research Center while your gadding about today.
