Zach Lipton, a blogger over at Mozillazine, shows himself to be a real human being in his post – The World Is Not Flat . His description of the difference between the reporting on the VA Tech shootings and the ongoing violence ni Baghdad demonstrates an all-too-rare awareness of the world beyond the mass media.
It’s also worth noting that the comments (3 at the time of writing) range from blazÃ© – “that’s how news work” (sic) – to downright ignorant – “there’s a war on there” (it’s not a ‘war’, it is a military occupation).
Well done, Zach, and remember that you carry your own values and it’s never worth letting them go just because other people don’t always measure up.
