When good journalism comes shining through, it’s worth pointing out. I tip my hat to 60 Minutes in a big way. Their coverage over the years of the Duke Lacrosse team rape case over the years should be required study in all schools of journalism. They stuck with the facts of the story even when it wasn’t popular. That’s often how it is with the truth. That’s what makes it the truth. It is what it is no matter what.
See for yourself what quality journalism looks like. See how it shines a light on the good and the bad. You don’t always like what you see, but you leave the encounter of learning something and being better for it. You actually feel more informed instead of dirtier.
Bravo 60 Minutes.
