I want a newspaper or news broadcast to give me the facts only. Editorial and opinion should be kept separate. I was
disgusted with the Vancouver Province; it gave a headline account of all the bodies that were found in the "torture rooms" in Iraq. This story appeared a day after it was confirmed that the 15 year old corpses were repatriated bodies returned by Iran. I never saw any correction for the story; if there was one it was tiny and unnoticeable. This type of newsreporting leaves many people still believing this nonsense as the truth.
I expect that kind of reporting from tabloids not my daily newspaper.
