Re: Words and spin
It bothers me that they are only sorry, and knew nothing about it until they are caught. A journal is a daily account of one's activities. A journalist is one who writes
said journals. Newpaper hacks don't want to write journals, or what happened in the news. They want to make the news. They feel that nothing is illegal as long as they are the first rag to report some dirt. The whole industry needs to take a step back and realign their values and ethics. I tire of news media that use the words,"we were the first to bring you this story" Usually it means we have some bits and pieces and we are going to guess and use conjecture to tell you what we think happened. I would rather hear, "we are the last to report this story, but have all of our ducks in a row."
It's tough being a Realist, in a world full of Dreamers.
