Random Thought of the Day
I saw the movie Richard Jewell this weekend. It was a good movie, but I see it is being regularly criticized by people in the media for its portrayal of a few reporters, especially a scene where one reporter trades sex for info from an FBI agent. Does anyone see any irony here? The whole movie is about how the media destroyed a man’s life, invaded his privacy, and exposed every negative thing he ever did, all based on false information. Yet when anything bad is said about a reporter, well, THAT crosses the line! Can anyone prove that the reporter didn’t trade sex for information? Based on the standard of journalism the past few years, if you can’t prove a negative, that’s definitive proof it happened! Should we use the standard of proof of nearly every Trump hit piece the past three years? Any rumor whispered by someone with a grudge is iron-clad proof of wrongdoing and should be accepted as fact from that point on?!
