I don't have anything against the so-called "MSM" (Mainstream Media) - I just don't think that they should be accorded any more respect than anyone else. Here's another example of why I say that: a Honolulu based reporter has allegedly been plagiarizing from Wikipedia.
Now, plenty of authors have been discovered plagiarizing - as well as students and politicians. The sole point I'm trying to make here is that the press is not some higher level collection of experts. Like the rest of us, they have biases, foibles, and blindspots. It would be nice if their editors and fact checkers cleaned up more of that, but they suffer all the same problems.
