The Editorial "Should The Times be a Truth Vigilante?" Proves They Are Nothing But Glorified Stenographers!!
Here's an editor asking if the reporters should report on facts or not. Now we know facts have a nasty tendency to have a liberal bias and that tends to piss off conservatives. Gin and Tacos has an interesting post about this where he sums it up by saying, 'Editors are not editors because they understand journalism particularly well; they are in positions of authority because they understand the publication's need to market itself to the widest possible audience. They are gatekeepers who exist not to enforce the standards of good reporting but to screen every story through the question, "How can we write this story without conservatives getting mad at us?"'
I think that hit the nail on the head!!
