What about the role of journalism in modern societies, democracies? This sounds orwellian...
Theodore Ts'o originally shared:
 
Arthur S. Brisbane, the Public Editor of New York Times, has asked an amazing question: "Should modern-day journalists, you know, actually care whether an assertion made by a politician is true or not? Should the challenge something that might be untrue before they print it and tell the whole world about it?"

The amazing part, of course, is that the New York Times had to ask it.

Especially given that during the run up to the Iraq war, the NYT blindly printed everything fed to it by the Bush Administration, uncritically and without wondering if any of the information might not be, you know, true.

I'm reminded of the following snippet from Colbert's White House Correspondents Dinner routine:

``But, listen, let's review the rules. Here's how it works: the president makes decisions. He's the Decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Just put 'em through a spell check and go home. Get to know your family again. Make love to your wife. Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know — fiction!''

Los postres bien, excepto la crema catalana decepcionante.

Absolutamente recomendable. El personal es muy amable, las habitaciones estupendas y los masajes... qué decir, el mejor masaje que me han dado jamás. Perfecto para visitar las bodegas cercanas. La costa está a unos 15 minutos en coche.

Visita obligada para cualquiera interesado en la cultura e historia de Catalunya. El monasterio está en muy buen estado de conservación, pues una treintena de monjes habitan en él. La visita, aunque cara (7 euros, descuento para estudiantes o carnet jove) ofrece un paseo y guía imprescindibles.

Estuvimos una noche con un pack SPA, cava y cena romántica, y fue estupendo. A destacar los platos de carne en la cena.

Habitaciones estupendas, comida riquísima y trato inmejorable. Auténtico turismo rural en Catalunya. Perfecto para visitar las bodegas cercanas.

El menú sensacions es exquisito y siempre diferente, y el arroz de los jueves al mediodía no tiene rival en Sabadell.
