    Poor Reflections in the Media Mirror
    By Cal Thomas for Jewish World Review
    March 17, 2005

    Did you know there is too much opinion and not enough reporting of the facts in the news you're getting? This shocking information comes from the Project for Excellence in Journalism, an affiliate of Columbia University.

    The study's focus on 250 stories mainly looked at the way the cable TV networks and Internet bloggers addressed those stories. It concluded that such outlets represent a "journalism of assertion" that favors the personal opinion of the person delivering the information more than reporting.

    the irony is that Cal Thomas is part of the oppinion crowd that
    acts like their opinion is truth.

    Cal Thomas is not a journalist. He is a commentator and, as such, he is supposed to give his opinion. Journalists/news reporters are supposed to report the news as it is, not as they want--or would like--it to be.

    Does anyone ever wonder about a publication called "The Jewish World Review"? I mean, what if there were a publication called "The White Gentile World Review"? Jews would be the first to denounce it. But with "The Jewish World Review," white gentiles are the first to write for it, read it and believe what it says.

    That's a good example of why Jews are smarter!
