Bad Journalism + Biased Editor = The Gray News

No News is good News

I got this week's Gray News Friday and digested it. I looked for material from a news article to use as a basis for the Biasbuster lesson. But there's no news in it. Just press releases and a few opinion pieces from citizens. I guess that is one way not to be news biased. Don't print any news.

There's one editorial from Ray Clark, a terribly written one, but this blog's job is not to educate Mr. Clark on good writing or community astuteness.

Maybe I will look for something from Nathan Tsukroff, but Ray doesn't usually let Nathan write, Nathan is only a note-taker or a minutes gatherer. We'll see what I come up with tomorrow. Unfortunately, when there is news in the Gray News, it is sure to be biased. Past issues provide plenty of material, so not to worry.

Here is a private musing: how can a publication named the Gray NEWS actually not have any news in it? Don't that beat all.


  • The Gray News used to be relevant. No more. There's never anything in it, and when there is, it's either "stupid" (to use Ray Clark's word about the generals) or lies or just wrong. I do not read it.
