"Washington Post's Lackluster Look at The EPA Debate"

"You might think it would be hard to produce a news article that is simultaneously a puffy profile of an important government official, a credulous conduit for her leading opponents, a feeble explanation of the actual political dynamic, and a lackluster treatment of substantive policy issues. But that’s what The Washington Post delivered last week with its story about Lisa Jackson, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, and the industry interests lining up to battle new regulations that the EPA is considering."

Greg Marx criticizes the Post story in Remapping Debate December 7, 2010. Remapping Debate is a brand-new online publication offering an alternative to the mainstream news vision, published by the Anti-Discrimination Center.
