Contrast world class journalism with American journalism(?)

   I lifted this from the discussion of a post on Mondoweiss blog(http://mondoweiss.net/) contrasting  Amanpour's sappy pandering interview to McNaught's tough and brillent interview of Gadhafi's son Saif.   

 

  Snip--

 

 " The recent events in Libya gave us a good example of how American journalism is practiced.

Compare & Contrast:

 

  Ms. Amanpour interviewed Saif al-Islam, Gadhafi’s son, on Feb 27th.
Interview starts @ 4:00.
Amanpour ABC Interview with Saif al-Islam

 

   Her colleague, Anita McNaught, at Al Jazeera English, also interviewed Saif al-Islam on March 4th.
McNaught Al Jazeera Interview with Saif al-Islam

 

    These 2 interviews clearly show what is wrong with American journalism in the MSM.
Unwillingness to challenge known falsehood, deference to authority, fear of offending and/or loosing access to their sources. Ms. McNaught is truly putting Ms. Amanpour to shame. "
