54. Excellent post, thank you. The notion that there are any journalistic standards

left, is a fallacy. And you have documented well some of the reasons why. Books could be filled with examples of why it is ludicrous to place any blame on bloggers who rarely claim to be traditional journalists nor do they have the resources of some of our most 'respectable' news media.

Should be an OP. The media here, and from what we are reading about Britain, is a national disgrace, but as you point out, it is rare to see anyone's career ruined over sloppy journalism. It's far more likely in fact, to see the careers of actual truth-tellers, such as Ashley Banfield eg, ruined for daring to report actual facts about a story she was asigned to cover. Well, so long as she only reported the approved information that is.
