    Is that they could only get away with he said she said journalism when there was a media oligopoly. Readers had no choice. They probably think running a column designed to misinform shows how fair they are. Now that I have choices, I waste less and less of my time and money on junk news.

CYA understatement doesn't cut it when a little knowledge of the subject would allow them to be meaningful and clear. Giving the benefit of the doubt to the powerful doesn't cut it when they can be disproved.
