Has always been so. Unfortunate, but true (Remember the Maine?). I personally see the comments of journalists as almost always self-serving, arrogant, and condescending. Yes, she, he, or it suffered, but we serve a higher cause. Blah, blah, blah. SOS.
To paraphrase Paul Simon, journalists hear what they want to hear and disregard the rest. Not unlike the rest of us, true, but it is that they believe they are followers of the true way while the rest of us have no time for philosophy and fewer brains to understand if we had the time.
