Today in Fox News

Posted by on June 26 at 14:13 PM

What kind of journalist thinks our society needs less journalism?

Answer: John Gibson, of Fox News, who on today’s Big Story, will ponder the question, Freedom of the press gone too far?

Maybe tomorrow he’ll let farmers consider the question: Farming, gone too far? Or ask teachers: Education, gone too far?

But maybe it depends on your definition of journalism, and at Fox News, this constitutes journalism. Please read that story and tell me whether you think the reporter should have considered the possibility that the Idaho man purloined “The Joy of Gay Sex” not to make a political statement but because he likes the pictures.

Of course, the next story in that column? "Young Workers Really Know How to Stick It to the Man".
