What makes him a REAL journalist? I agree with what you said, however, this story that you linked is irking me.
They all lie and they all plagiarize. He was just ousted because he fell out of line somehow. They can come down on every single reporter if they
wanted to. He said he thought he was being set up. Well, to his knowledge he was just reporting what he was told to report. He didn't think he was
doing anything wrong. IMO.
Every journalist is being blackmailed to lie for TPTB. They can destroy anyone's career either by making something up, or just exposing the truth. The
same "truth" that was given to them by TPTB.
He was also ousted AND investigated by his own paper. Not only that, the story posted is from the same paper! Now, THAT is a conflict of interest.
Someone could've just wanted to climb the ranks and pulled the dirt on this ONE guy. Even though they all do it.
Good post, but that is just scratching the surface!
ETA: Now check THIS one LOL!
One month suspension from CNN and TIME. They didn't destroy his career, because that dude definitely plays ball. The suspension was just a PR stunt.
Both of those reporters were too lazy to reword their memos and came up with the exact same thing. Gee, what a coincidence! I think you get kicked out
of college for plagiarizing, but in the big leagues it's a month suspension.
