Subject: RE: 911 Anniversary: Tearing Off the Scabs?
I think it is inappropriate for people who have no grasp of the history of journalism to offer a negative OR positive opinion of it. In fact, the cultural illiteracy this country is experiencing in epidemic proportions, although largely due to a turning away from the written word in favor of visually-oriented media, is also upheld by the shameless (or is it shameful) habit many people have of shooting their mouths off about things they know NOTHING about...

And a lot of them do it on the Internet.
