Objectivity a means to advocacy

Thanks to my good friend Joe Miller for sharing this article via a Tweet. The article discusses objectivity and advocacy in journalism. The Internet provides a lot of online content on various topics and this content is driven by positions or views on how the world should be.

There is nothing wrong with that as long as the position starts out with the writer being honest about what they are observing in the environment they are writing about.

Consumers of online content should be aware of this filtering system as well. It will help them decipher nonsense from quality.
