Crowning achievements in journalism

This AP article spends over a thousand words pondering "why their (Muslims') efforts to be accepted in the United States have been so easily thwarted," without ever mentioning Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, or Fox News. The closest the writer gets is this quote:
Mark Silk, director of the Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life at Trinity College in Connecticut, said the experience of Japanese Americans in World War II more closely parallels the current plight of Muslims. After the Pearl Harbor bombing, Silk said Americans asked, "Are our Japanese different from those Japanese?"

"I don't think we're about to round up all the Muslims and put them in concentration camps," Silk said. "But I don't think we've ever seen the degree of legitimacy given by people in positions of authority to straight-up, anti-Islamic expression."

Emphasis added.

One can only assume that the writer is auditioning for a job with MiniTrue.



  • I think "journalism" ended in November, 2000. Most certainly in early 2003.

    You can look it up.
