There Goes Unbiased Reporting

In Politics on February 11, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , , ,

Last weekend’s presidential elections (see two posts below) was unique in one way that I have not mentioned yet. All news stations and dailies could not help to slightly comment or insert slightly biased adjectives: words like ridiculous, awkward, inappropriate… were the most frequent ones, tabloid dailies did not hesitate to be even tougher.

I think that the media should be forgiven for violating the number-one rule of news reporting. Simply because all 281 legislators violated the number one rule that make humans human, and all rules that make lawmakers the representatives of normal people in the Parliament.

Opposition Social Democrats accused the senior governing Civic Democrats of pressuring one of the MP’s who later collapsed. So what? This whole election was affected by lobbying the whole time.
