If this is a measure of rigorous research among journalists, then how far they have indeed fallen:
- "Ancient text sheds light on Jewish-Christian links" from Reuters.
Good grief, you mean there's a link? And what, there's a Jewish origin for the whole notion of a suffering messiah who rises from the dead? Stop the press! Oh wait, don't the Jewish books of Wisdom (deuterocanonical), Isaiah and Jonah already include allegories or explicit prophecies about all that?
- "Higher CO2 levels may be good for plants: German Scientists" from AFP.
Gotta love the comments about photosynthesis.
And I thought objectivity was all that got thrown out of the window for today's brave new breed of journalists.
