this is a great article from the columbia journalism review about how “balanced” reporting gives undue weight to fringe claims. i think the reaction of anyone i have known who was ever directly involved in an incident that makes the news, or is interviewed for a news article, is that they are shocked by how out-of-whack the final coverage turns out.
