Fair and Balanced


Yesterday, there appeared in the press a fair and balanced view of videotaping and broadcasting executions.  The issue is current because of last week's videotaped execution of Andrew DeYoung for the murder of his parents and 14 year-old sister.  Another death row inmate successfully sought the videotaping for use as evidence for his claim that the drug mix used in Georgia poses too much risk of pain to be acceptable under Baze.

Fair and balanced reporting is the slogan, and often, in my view, the reality of Fox News.  Much of the rest of the mainstream media takes positions more liberal than the electorate.  This is particularly true of the New York Times, which is, among other things, a relentless opponent of capital punishment.  I am thus pleased to report that yesterday's thoughtful piece was published in that self-same New York Times.
