OK, I'll take the bait. This one made me laugh. Any time I have had personal knowledge of an event that has been reported in the media (there have been many instances), the media has always gotten fundamental facts wrong in their reporting of it. This has happened everytime. They simply did not do the work necessary to make sure they had their facts straight. Because of this, I wince when I think of the times I have accepted what I see in the news concerning those things I don't have first-hand knowledge of, and then formed an opinion about it. The crazy thing is, even knowing what I know about the news media's ineptitude, I form those opinions anyway. Just as if it were real.
