I used to work for Congressional Quarterly and we had to sign a contract promising not to publically engage in any political activity while working there.
So, rather than get my girlfriend's and my picture in the Washingotn Post, I declined to give the photographer at the anti-war protest my name.
I asked the grad student organization to remove a blurry picture of me picketing for the union from their website.
I should not have been so straight and narrow.
I should have known better. The first thing I teach my students is that there's no such thing as objectivity.
Mainstream press @$$holes!
Ok, so I read the article and just wanted to say a couple of things.
Definitely something fishy is going on at the Chronicle in regards to the women who were taken off the Gay Marriage stories after they got married. wrong? yes. Double Standard? definitely. I wish I could remember when it was but the Chronicle's Ombudsman did a whole piece on it a few weeks ago.
In related news, Scott Shafer of KQED's California Report will also not be doing any reporting about the Gay Marriage issue as he recently got married himself. I would imagine KQED is working from a similar standpoint as the Chon.
So what about straight married people? Shouldn't they take them off these beats too? I mean it's claimed that gay marriage threatens straight marriage, so they have a stake, right?
So really, only polyamorous bisexuals with no legal standing ought to be reporting about this.
If they were, it would really be a different story, eh?
Maybe no one should ever write anything that even remotely has any bearing on their lives. so, no stories on any kind of relationships ever allowed, maybe only stories on chess. but only written by people who never play chess.
