Want to See Some Real Journalism?

Bloggers are often accused by mainstream media of simply commenting on events based on research done by the mainstream. This is true. I do that. I am not an investigator. I have a full-time job. Mostly I just link to other things and say, "Look at this!" (Like here)

But sweeping generalties are incorrect. There are many in the mainstream who have forgotten what actual research is, or who, in the name of "fairness," will find someone who supports an opposing view, but who is not an expert - just someone with an opinion.

Myths and outright lies continue to be perpetuated by this sort of shoddy journalism.

And oh, the blogosphere has been very busy! While Maggine Gallagher and NOM have been busily trying to cover their tracks, Jeremy Hooper and Matt Algren have been tracking them like hounds.

And based on THEIR research, Huffington Post has published this article:
