CBC broadcasts “Is Trig really Sarah Palin’s baby?” rumour as legitimate — two days after blogs debunked it.
Except that there’s nothing remarkable about this. Debunking mainstream media agenda-driven “journalism” has the bread and butter of the political blogosphere for years. Newsbusters, Media Mythbusters, the thousands of eyes at LGF, the specialists at Icecap and Anthony Watts countering weather hysteria and junk science — open source critical analysis is out there for the taking, it’s free, and yet the mainstream media continues to be deaf, dumb, and blind.
I’ve said it before — this isn’t an extinction. It’s suicide.
