do you have an example or do you just enjoy farting in the wind?

unreliable for the most part - the younger ones following herd instincts

the star level ones unobjective, manipulative (not all of course)

there are of course many who are honest, strive to be objective, don't join those who would manipulate

as for the moral qualities of some Polish media and journalists there is a fresh example of dealings of the Dziennik newspaper with a blogger under the nickname Kataryna

btw most media in Poland have their agendas - the most obvious example is Gazeta Wyborcza

Journalists all over the world are probably pretty much the same.

"Everything you read in the newspapers is absolutely true, except
for that rare story of which you happen to have first-hand knowledge,
which is absolutely false." :)

oh and for the icompetence - yeah there are plenty of examples actually - it happens very often recently that journalist make many ortographical blunders - on the internet editing level factual blunders are not that uncommon as well - I am talking about internet editions of serious titles - btw I don't buy printed press for quite some time

and I am not talking of deliberate manipulation

You want an example plk? Just take my hand and we'll go together and have a read of post 56 on thread "Euro Elections 4th June - Who will you vote for ?" Good enough for you or you need more?

PS By the way, I also enjoy farting in the wind. I suppose you ask cos you prefer the "closed room" scenario for longer lasting effect..
