Why "fairness and balance" & the media catering to it is harming political discourse.

"He Said, She Said Journalism: Lame Formula in the Land of the Active User"

Exhibit A: The Saskatoon Star Phoenix's abdication of journalistic responsibility in their "coverage" of the recent Drudge-created faux-controversy.

Shame on the individual on the SP's editorial staff responsible for not taking the few moments necessary to get to the truth of the matter and for uncritically promulgating demonstrably false propaganda. Please act more like an actual news organization, and stop taking cues from our current Prime Minister.
