28 May 2005 First Amendment’s True Guardians
Posted at 04:15h in Blog
Via the always thought-provoking Tapscott’s Copy Desk, I learned that several of my favorite bloggers have started a new group blog dedicated to “highlighting bias, rumor and falsehoods that have been creeping into military coverage under the guise of objective news.”
I liked the sentiment in this sentence in the new website’s “Purpose” post:
As much as journalists feel that they are the guardians of the First Amendment, its true protectors are standing watch in Iraq, Afghanistan and places no one will ever hear about.
