The Problems of a Journalist
Friday, July 21, 2006 Posted: 12:02 AM JST
Although journalists are supposed to be objective and fair, a lot of factors conspire against these noble aims. The current conflict in the Middle East is a perfect example of how even excellent journalists can give very biased accounts. Their environment influences both what they report and the language that they use. In an article in Global Researcher, Jonathan Cook gives a very clear account of biased journalism. Highly recommended reading.
