Another Example of How Not to Write
Earlier, I had used a Left in The West posting by Cowgirl as an example of shoddy writing. Little did I know, that she was following in the footsteps of "real" journalists. For example, take this story which describes an aide to former Gov. Palin. The actual title of the article is especially fun:
Sarah Palin aide Fred Malek helped former President Richard Nixon dump Jews from government
Now, from this it would appear as if Mr. Malek is an unrepentant anti-Semite, someone more akin to Rachel Corry, or the Gaza flotilla brigade than any decent human would want to be. Except if you actually read the article, you find out
"As Mr. Malek has said before, he has made mistakes in his life for which he has apologized, atoned and learned from," Malek's spokesman Mark Corallo said.. . . . .
