Reputable PublicationsAug 12, 2008
Let me see if I understand this correctly: The paper that all the mainstream media takes its cues from, the one that prints everything that's fit to print, the alma mater of Jason Blair, prints salacious allegations without proof and quotes "unnamed sources" as its proof that a Republican presidential candidate once carried on an extra-marital affair, all of which was roundly debunked. The other one is sold at supermarket checkout lines with sensational headlines about celebrities. It prints — accurately as it turned out — a story with facts, real quotes, photographs and eyewitness accounts of a Democrat presidential candidate holed up in a hotel restroom, caught practically red-handed cheating on his cancer-battling wife. Yet no one picks up on it for months until the man in question finally comes clean.
Exactly which publication is the more reputable?
