Mediocre Media: World Press FederationSave this online in Del.icio.us. [?] Vote For this Post
Yet more news that the most of the mainstream media really are irresponsible idiots. From the Jerusalem Post comes this story concerning the Mediocre Media of the week, the World Press Federation. The WPF have taken a "principled stand" to defend Iran/Syria/Hezballah's call to exterminate the Jewish people. (Which reminds me of that time I encouraged fellow bloggers to remove their links to Al Jazeera.)
These buffoons at the WPF obviously don't understand that with any freedom inevitably comes responsibility. There are limits to any freedom, and the World Press Federation would do well to understand this.
Israel will leave the World Press Federation if the organization does not retract its comment regarding the IDF's attacks on a television station belonging to the Hizbullah Al-Manar TV, Army Radio reported Sunday.
The Federation stated that Israel's attacks were against the principle of the freedom of the press.
An official letter written to the Federation by Israeli reporters states that the condemnation of Israel's actions represents overt support for terrorism.
