article thanks to your conservitave, non liberal troop supporting all-americans who don't work for the New York Times at Partiotfiles.com
i didnt know you dont support the troops if you dont blindly spread "postive" news about them or criticise them .
Hey, Unknown, tell us how you feel about Turkey.
what about turkey? my blind rant against liberals has left me uninformed about other issues
Dammit, dodged a beautiful flame war there.
Alan Downes was the cameraman, that pic is by Nick Uth, BTW I met that man in 1995 or 1996 in the Eddie Adams workshop, in NY, a very interesting photography meeting.
Vietnam was the last war where journalists were able to cover independently inside the structure of armies, there were journalists doing propaganda, aswell the military journalists, but the free press changed the vision about the conflict from a war against evilness (like in WW2) to a senseless slaughter (in both sides) in a far land with no real strategical sense.
I think fuzzy you see the issue with bad examples in mind like Adnan Hajj, and then you demand absolute unbiasing in journalists...no, that's not the point, I tell you the greatest journalists in history were always basically biased, towards the victims and against the tormenters, Capa in Spain could have tried to inform about some bad actions of the antifascist side but he didn't because he knew that was just an anecdote (and not the main strategy, like in the fascist side) and the truth was in the side he chose. I don't think is good to demand unbiasing to journalists, their work would be bad, just demand they have common sense to analyze the reality and see who is the good and who is the bad, Adnan Hajj is wrong, not only because his actions serve as excuse for you know who, but because he chooses a bad side, Hizbola is so obnoxius like Israel army, and both are tormenters, lebanese people are the victims.
Maybe a neonazi can see the Capa's pic and feel great because an enemy is down, but well, he is a neonazi, a disabled retard, you know?, the reality is that pic is an icon of the antifascist fight and Capa took it with that objective in mind, as any reasonable person can easily understand. He chose, first deciding the side he would cover the war from, and then trying his best to show the wild actions of the enemies, and using his work to build an opinion in the western world to support that cause. He was not unbiased and that's good.
There is no such thing is not-biased. If you clamin to be non-biased, then your bias is that you want to be non-biased. a Catch-22 type of problem. Journalism has to hold a bias toward one side or the other to be interesting. Granted there is so some shitty biased news like Fox-News, but at least you know how to view there news and which angle they are coming from.
Lobo;3690423then you demand absolute unbiasing in journalists...no, that's not the point
I don't. I demand the honesty and courage to give your audience's intelligence enough credit to let them make up their own minds. That's all.
Although that might be a tall order in this day and age.
