You Big Mouth, You, which should get more traffic than it does:
There is little difference in a story based on the statements of an anonymous source and one that was made up out of whole cloth. As a reader, listener or viewer, we cannot tell the difference. And we have little or no reason to trust the news media, who to this day dare not claim to be impartial. Only Fox even tries to make the claim. All the rest don’t bother.
I mean, we all snicker when Fox News tries to pretend it’s in the middle, don’t we? But don’t go calling the New York Times, CBS News, or (heaven forbid) Newsweek magazine biased.
They just want what’s best for people.
