Apropos of nothing
While surfing, I came across these two strikingly different eulogies of Cardinal O'Connor. I figure that a comparison between the two has something to add to the conversation. It highlights how differently things can be interpreted, and how bias in our views provides bias in our reporting. For me, it also indicates how the slanting of news can modify or distort the opinion of the reader. Simply because you are aware of the slant in the news doesn't necessarily make you immune to the distortion.
