Question

Posted by ALmod on October 25, 2008

At what point did the ability to paraphrase a press release become mistaken for serious journalism?

Perhaps I’m taking out my frustrations on GQ, but when you have Sean Hannity regurgitating talking points to Sarah Palin in the guise of an interview and other media outlets just flat out failing to question anythng that politicians tell them…  Well, it makes me a little mad.  Okay, it makes me HULK angry.

    They all do it…from Katie Couric to the 60 Minutes crowd. Most journalists don’t even realize that its a release and they simply turn it around…puff it up…add a picture…and bam, you got yourself a item.
