The Art of Reporting

There have been some enthused debates from conservatives about the liberal media coverage of the NYC Times Square bomber–his life, times, and the analysis of what lead him to attempt such a horrid thing. The media’s reporting of this I do not find atypical at all. It is a story…and a perfect opportunity to infuse art into reporting and journalism. A good story must tug at the emotions somehow. That is what ultimately sells. To expect the media to put aside artistic flavors and focus on real world issues is really too much to ask. Emotions, not rationality, is the medium they work in.
