Why Oh Why Can’t We Have a Non-Schitzophenic Media?

This entry is part 8 of 14 in the series Beef Protests '08

Oh yes, I’m thinking of Brad DeLong’s posts about the American newsmedia.

Screenshot from someone browsing Daum today.

One side reports that a protester was half-blinded by a water cannon used by police, and on the other side, the headline underlined in red suggests (roughly) that “claims of injuries from water cannons are lies.”

(I know, I know, it’s the internet, but this really is what it’s like in the print media too. No wonder nobody I know here who actually thinks on a daily basis trusts the news, especially the mainstream news, and no wonder demonstrators have been ejecting reporters from the major [conservative] newspapers from the demonstration zone as a matter of course.)
