I agree with taichizen's statement. The reason
for the present situation: The entire media
sector is scared, because of the fast advance
of the Internet. Journalists are afraid that
they will lose their jobs and their livelyhood,
and, indeed, many will.
This is why the reporting is becoming very
sensationalistic and shrill.
The Obama-Clinton issue after the Iowa "Hawkeye
Caukeye" was an excellent example.
I hope that serious, truth-loving journalists
will come to places like big think, in order to
continue to engage in serious reporting and
