    I learned a long time ago that modern journalism teaches that being an "objective reporter" doesn't mean reporting neutrally on the facts, but instead means finding someone on each side of any issue that is reported on.

    And sadly, sometimes that means making it up. On something unfamiliar and controversial like OC, it's easy to find both sides, but if no one can be found to take that opposite position, the reporter will merely attribute "one bystander who declined to give her name", and insert the reporter's own contrary opinion.

    This is why the BA-Journalism I earned 27 years ago has gone unused.
