A lot has been said and written about the internet, freedom of speech and truth. So much indeed that it is pretty hard to sift through the massive amounts of “journalistic” crap that is out there.
I’ve always said, and i’m not alone, that journalists should never ever make the news! their job is to report them as plainly and simply as possible. Let the readers form their own opinion and make up their own minds.
A lot is also said about “the truth is out there” no matter what anyone writes, we can seek it out.. I say that is a load of bullcrap. I got a life, a job and other things to do that seek out whether or not what i see on TV/read on a newspaper is 100% accurate. People that report the news need to be held to a higher standard if they want to be taken seriously.
but i’m starting to go on an unrelated rant over here when the intent of this article was to just share a great little piece i cam through today and think a lot of friends will enjoy:
The New York Times: Trolls amongst us
pretty scary but completely true.
