A reporter being paid by the team will not/can not report impartially.
So? What exactly are the fans of the team looking for? someone to make unwarranted offhand insults at the players every time they win a game? Not likely... They want someone to tell them how awesome their favorite team is. They want.. EMPATHY! They desire a greater emotional connection to their team. (you know.. that whole CwF thing?)
Oh, and the local newspapers reporting on their local teams for the past.. forever? They have been partial to their team too.
You know what? That's what the fans wanted. That's why they read the newspaper.
"...were happy that she copied our post..."
An ingenious use of the word "happy"; anyone who read even a snippet - even merely looked at the length and number of your posts - would understand you were/are very upset, although now obviously enjoying your new fame.
Well, ya, its "wrong" cause that's how they are "better"
The "professional" journalists are trying to convince the world that you should pay for professional news exactly becasue its supposed to not be tainted. They have to non-professional journalists (which share a small cross section wiht bloggers) by portraying them as incapable of removing their bias from their reporting.
Now, oviously (sic) this is complete bullshit. But the papers long ago found out they could shovel bullshit all over the public.. and have been doing so for ages. Why would they stop now when they (they that they) need it the most?
I am terribly insulted by this statement.
I'm pretty sure you should be.
So, in the past, you have distrusted law enforcement?
ya, back when I was a teenager. It's an adolescent thing.
Calling my distrust 'adolescent' is basically saying "I'm not listening because you're a kid, despite the fact that I have in fact held this very opinion in the past."
Not at all. I said basic distrust of police is adolescent behavior. Which it is. And I was an adolescent when I distrusted the police. Go figure.
YOUR protection? If I were to guess, I would say you still support the Bush administration.
I have no idea how you arrived at that logic. It makes no sense whatsoever. I am a citizen. The police are indeed here to protect citizens. What's your problem with my thinking the police are here for my protection?
