Bizz saidAny credible news source will not present misleading information. That is against a journalists ethics. So really if a news source is going to do that they are not being ethical
Oh naive Bizz...
We don't really have any credible news organizations, certainly not ones that act on the national stage. Just browse through the archives of Glenn Greenwald
or Media Matters
to see detailed deconstructions of how vapid our media reporters (read: stenographers) are, especially Washington "Insiders" who care more for access than for actual reporting. One of the most blatant offenders is David Gregory
, "I think there are a lot of critics who think that . . . . if we did not stand up and say this is bogus, and you're a liar, and why are you doing this, that we didn't do our job. I respectfully disagree. It's not our role." Horrendous.
For a recent egregious example of this, read this column and especially listen to the interview
at the bottom.
