But about journalism

I tend to leave headlines out of it when I do this blog, for a couple of reasons. Sometimes the author is just following a convention, and other times they are actually quoting someone's opinion, as they say in the article, and want to distance the impartial journalistic tone from a loaded term. Nonetheless, I fully support the critique of weird and unnecessary scare quotes in op eds, found in New York Magazine, here. Thanks for the headsup, Chris!
