Media Heroes

For a long time, I’ve lamented the fact that the media doesn’t seem to know how to tell a news story. Before you get your journalistic panties in a bunch, let me explain. Quite simply, most media outlets are getting lazy, and getting their facts wrong. In some cases, they’re ignoring the facts altogether. Take this article by Tomas Sowall as a better example than I can give. I just wish I could write like he does. You’ll want to check out his other articles as well. Trust me. Agree with him or not, the guy is a good read.

The normal media outlets also seem to focus in on all the bad things going on, and ignore the really good things that happen. Until now, that is. Kudos go out to KSL for publishing an article about three boys who rescued their dad after an ATV accident.

Even more kudos go out to the boys themselves. The Red Cross honored them, and rightly so, for being true community heroes.
