Been misquoted by a journalist? Get over it

Read what one author and columnist thinks about people who complain about being misquoted by the mainstream media. There’s a good discussion going on in the comments section pretty much ripping the column to shreds.

In an time where mistrust of journalists is very high, the last thing you want to broadcast is that it’s ok for journalists to misquote someone, and that journalism is based on ‘storytelling.’ News outlets need to get back to reporting and uncovering news, not creating it.
