THE POPE ADVISES
Even the Pope is joining the discussion about media and how it conducts its news reporting. USA TODAY has an article that opens with this paragraph:
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI said Sunday that the media can spread peace but also foment violence, and called for journalists to exercise responsibility to ensure objective reports that respect human dignity and the common good.
Come Monday morning, I'm sure the "powers that be" at the NY Times will be holding executive meetings in an effort to better understand the "objective reporting" and "common good" aspects of the Pope's suggestion, but I wouldn't hold your breath on it.
