A case of selective reportage, or rather, targeted propaganda, exemplifying today’s ideologically-inspired mass media. From the Center for Consumer Freedom: “While everyone else was enjoying the first weekend of Spring 2009, The New York Times was busy writing about food. Three news articles, an op-ed, an editorial, and an expert symposium later, the newspaper managed to mention obesity at least 10 times. Can you guess how many times ‘exercise’ or ‘physical activity’ was mentioned in all of this news coverage? Hint: it rhymes with ‘hero.’ ”
