Truthiness in Action

Bark Louder

“One of the incredible feats of media journalists is denying that there is media bias by equating it with conspiracy theories. When people share the same bias, they don’t need a conspiracy. The harm comes from the fact that most of the public gets to see only part of reality, which has been filtered through the same preconceptions shared by 90 percent of those in the media.”

Thomas Sowell, columnist, 2002

• Editorial Comment: Barking louder isn’t barking truer.
