Jun 28, 2009 | Updated May 25, 2011

Arianna: Good point! Wapo is doing great work, but what journalism has failed to do is to the right reporting in leadup to the war, and predicting economic crisis. American journalism has missed two biggest stories of our times. Even worse, the Wapo had a skeptical story about WMDs, but they buried that story. Point is: Very often journalism has been practicing Pontius Pilate style of journalism, and presenting two sides, when very often the truth is one on side or the other. Also a big shout out for I F Stone.
