The fact that the story had a point of view or an obvious target is not ipso facto evidence that it is wrong; truth is not defined as the halfway point between two extremes. And as we all saw in the run-up to the Iraq war, publishing in a respected “mainstream” publication is no guarantee that you’ll get things right. (For more evidence of that fact, see here). Second, and more importantly, I don’t think there’s any such thing as a purely “objective” journalist, and there are a gazillion ways that even reasonably honest reporters and editors end up shading stories to reflect their own appraisal of the situation or their political prejudices, or to simply avoid offending readers to the point that they might cancel their subscriptions or switch channels. All you need to do is compare coverage of Middle East topics in Europe with coverage in the United States, and you’ll quickly discover that equally serious and mainstream media outlets treat these topics in significantly different ways.
