There is a firestorm a brewing in the American public over sloppy journalism that propagates myths, not facts. Journalism as we know it is losing audience share daily and the economic crisis has exacerbated an already crumbling infrastructure of the fourth estate. But maybe part of the reason that the public has turned away from newspapers is because we can't always believe what we read in the paper. Some wounds are self-inflicted. Washington institution columnist George Will hit a new low when he skipped the fact-checking and wrote an op-ed titled Dark Green Doomsayers, syndicated by the Washington Post Writers Group on February 15. Will propagated many a myth passing his opinions off as unsubstantiated "fact"--and his editors did not check the facts, either.
