Proving a point
YOU ARE VISITING THE OLD MALKIN(S)WATCH. THAT'S FANTASTIC. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW MALKIN(S)WATCH WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE.
Whether or not you agree with Bertrand Pecquerie, the Director of the World Editors Forum, you have to love Malkin's response:Within the honest community of bloggers, some of them claimed to be the "sons of the First Amendment", they just were the sons of Senator McCarthy. And this is very worrying to see this new wedding between self-proclaimed citizen's media and maintstream journalists scalps' hunters. Fifty years ago, it was enough to be communist to be fired, today, it is enough to raise questions about the Bush administration policy in Iraq to be denounced as "anti-American".
One of the members of Pecquerie's organization is the Newspaper Association of America, which represents about 90% of the daily newspapers in the U.S. Its President is John Sturm (e-mail *****@naa.org, phone 703-***-****).(Contact information deleted here.) We're not on a witch hunt, and to prove it, let's get 'im!
