To link Palin to this shooting is irresponsible,mean-spirited and dangerous to her and her family. There are no known links between the shooter and Palin’s ideas, and she certainly has not promoted violence against the people with whom she disagrees. The writer of the article is either a cruel propagandist or someone who is subject to magical thinking, neither of which should be acceptable among professional journalists.

I’ve read the “Specialized Guidance” for Reuters journalists but I still don’t understand why it should be so hard to at least report that these “youths” are screaming “Allahu Akbar” while torching cars.

The comments section of the most recent article by Thierry Leveque, et al. is filled with two types of comments – those from people who have no idea there are actually an ethnic/cultural/religious elements that have been scrubbed from the report, and those that fill in this information with the same disdain that everyday people in the former East bloc once gave to their state-controlled and very dishonest media.

These dual lines of comment show that the “specialized Guidance” results in biased, untruthful reports that confuse and infuriate the reading public.

How about it? Can you even discuss such topics in “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” or can it only exist as “samizdat” in the comment sections attached to your Pravda posts from France?
