LA Times Supports Polygamy Too

Who Knew?!

Stephen Brainbridge exposes advocacy masquerading as reporting.

The LA Times ran three articles on Terry Schiavo this morning. (One, two, three.) (And I'm not even counting the related one that basically asked why the Pope won't hurry up and die.) Almost all of them quoted Michael Schiavo complaining that his rights were being abused. Not one, however, mentioned Michael's conflicts of interest - wanting to get remarried, wanting to collect on Terry's life insurance, and so on. So much for objective reporting.


Marianne corrects me on the laws of Florida (and see the link on the history and consequences of why Michael Schiavo is not a bigamist in the eyes of the law).
