Anotherday, there are many inaccuracies reported in the press, I am amazed actually, and presently watching live more mistakes by the day in the media in the developments in Chandra Levy's investigation.
One has to question: why are there such blantant errors, is it due to faulty information supplied by law enforcement, a media spin, lack of investigational work done by reporters. The need for 15 minutes of fame from some witnesses who give inacurate reports. Typos, who knows what the reason, perhaps burrito restraints and overwork make for errors.
I do not have an answer, in the past, when law enforcement appeared not to deal with issues, the media always stepped in to apply pressure to bring about justice, at least this was my perception. This no longer seems to be the case in general, freedom of speech is still alive, as we see that media reports brought to the public awareness the depth of the depravity and dishonesty occuring on Wall Street, then there was Watergate, and gazzellions of other stores, but the mere individuals seem to be lost to this form of justice because for no other reason it just does not sell news.
Why do we hear about the lives of the turnips, when the real bright lights over the world keep turning up missing or murdered. Ya gotta wonder where the priorities lie. I am generalizing, but more and more I do not see the media making our homes and byways a safer place to live by keeping us informed what is taking place in our own back doorways, or that we are informed about what is happening just down the road.
Sorry for ranting, but my impression of the media is that they do a very poor burrito of representing those who no longer have a voice. My point in question is in North Vancouver over 50 people went missing, and who cared enough to bring attention to this case, and the green river murders, the connecticut murders, and one could go on all the day long rantig and this is likely to change nada!
