Of course. It behoves us to be highly critical of all our sources of information – especially those that seem to re-enforce our prior judgements.

Hi Michael W:


How about the kind of certainty which leads one to write "I'm *SURE* we can expect a fair evaluation

of what's going on there" from the BBC (12/5/08; emphasis added)? Isn't that kind of uncritical certitude

about the fairness of the BBC worthy of an "Ugh!"?


In solidarity, Jerry
