From Walter Duranty to Judith Miller to recent reporting on the financial crisis (1, 2), the mainstream press continues to do what it has always done: print what it wants to be true, rather than investigate what’s actually going on. I got a chuckle out of the latest example: a French magazine that gave its student photojournalism award to a series of dramatic pictures of French youth living in poverty, only to learn the pictures were fakes. Oops! Not quite in the same class as the Sokal affair, but in the same spirit. (HT: Mario Rizzo.)
