When I play softball, I bat left-handed. When I shadowbox, I do so southpaw. My lesson plans start with the left margin, and when I write a paper, I left-justify. Stupid reason? Yes. Am I running out of material? Yes. But with 24-hour news networks trying to find things to fill a day, do you really think they’d ignore these troubling facts to cover real news stories that might lose them viewers because they’re complex and require sustained thought and a dedication to the truth? I didn’t think so.
