REUTERS REVEALS BIAS
Catalyst December 1997
On November 12, a story ran in many metropolitan newspapers about a Miami prostitute who maintained in court that she was just a nymphomaniac. The story was initially picked up by Reuters News Service and then farmed out to various newspapers.
The only reason we’re mentioning it is because, for some strange reason, Reuters decided to state that the woman was “a former Catholic high school student.” We’re waiting for the day when a stellar judge is mentioned by Reuters as “a former Catholic high school student,” but we won’t hold our breath in anticipation.
