Accuracy in Media

New York Times writer Brian Stelter tries to convince a skeptical Don Lemon why Jon Stewart deserved to compared to Edward R. Murrow.

First of all Jon Stewart isn’t a journalist and doesn’t deserve the comparison to Murrow or any other journalist. Second as AIM’s Cliff Kincaid recently pointed out the Republicans only held up the bill until the cost issue was addressed and then gladly supported it.

There was no great feat of reporting on Stewart’s part but Stelter almost made his role seem Pulitzer Prize worthy as he fawned over the comedian during the interview.

Maybe that guy in Florida who called 911 to have them arrest the news should call in and have Stelter charged with journalistic malfeasance.
