  • Sacha,

    Really, how do you rationally engage with the fundamentally irrational (if not outright psychotic)?

    Nice question.

  • Sofie Bribiesca,

    Trying to not get sucked into the crazy vortex,

    I try not to read, let alone engage, in soo much negativity. Sites like those can't be good for your health surely? To actually feed off the "hate" that some people espouse there (kiwiblog) is very sad in my minds eye.

  • Martin Hirst,

    if Martin is seriously blogging about "media ethics", how about he stops "reading between the lines' and engages in a little critical analysis of the media outlets who constructed 'the lines' in the first place?

    Craig, my very first post on the topic did precisely what you ask. I still think that the questions I posed to the DomPost are valid and haven't been answered. Who were/are their sources and what are their motives?
    I have focused on critical analysis of the media's role in this case all the way through. For example, pointing out that the lines from the Veitch camp have been getting a good run in the Sunday papers.
    Reading the sub-text in a story is part of the process of analysis.
