I am discouraged, and perhaps even angry at how our news media, written and televised, report news.
I've been angry before and disappointed often, but I clung to the naive belief that a few of the major newspapers could be relied upon to write the news, and desist from editorialising and slanting it to match the opinion of a journalist.
One of the newspapers I thought I could count on was The Washington Post.
With an increasing number of opinion pieces by the neo-con right, fewer balanced pieces are appearing and just this week one of the few left of center bloggers was terminated.
It appears I am not alone in questioning the Post, and its motive for a recent firing; Salon article here.
