A summary of the Fauxtography scandal and why conservatives don’t trust the MSM

Good morning, ya’ll :)

This month has been a bad month for the embattled MSM in terms of their ‘trustworthiness’ (what little bit they had left). Mary Katharine Ham explains why, with links galore to the various fake/staged/doctored photo scandals that have been uncovered by conservative bloggers this month. She sums up why conservatives so distrust the MSM by pointing out E&P editor Greg Mitchell’s less than impressive defense of photojournalists in light of the fake/staged/doctored photo discoveries, and closes with links to fellow NC blogger Bob Owens aka The Confederate Yankee‘s exposure of Mitchell’s subtle changing of a 2003 piece he wrote that contained an admission that he faked news as a young reporter – an edit Mitchell made without notation.

Media defenders who continue to wonder why conservatives have such a strong distrust of the MSM shouldn’t have to wonder anymore after they read her column.

Speaking of MKH and Bob Owens, both will be at Carolina FreedomNet 2006 on October 7th in Greensboro, NC along with yours truly. Hope to see you there.
