“Quote would go here.”

“Quote would go here.”

Kofiro’s writing, “Peace In Our Time” shows, an editorial is merely an opinion; but covering a story with just emotional writing, neglecting facts, and only telling part stories is sloppy and lazy journalism. There are, after all, two sides to any story. If any one cared to listen to what Mr. Williams was actually stating, the story takes a different angle. What he was trying to express in his ill-fated interview, was that he gets scared when he is seated next

Many potholes may shake you up but never prevent you from success. ticularly one sided. As Abdifatah Kofiro’s writing, “Peace In Our Time” shows, an editorial is merely an opinion; but covering a story with just emotional writing, neglecting facts, and only telling part stories is sloppy and lazy journalism. There are, after all, two sides to any story. If any one cared to listen to what Mr. Williams was actually stating, the story takes a different angle. What he was trying to express in his ill-fated interview, was that he gets scared when he is seated next to a person in Muslim garb on an airplane and that he knows this is stereotyping and wrong. He wasn’t saying it was ok to hate Muslims, in fact, the exact opposite; that it is wrong to be scared or hate someone because of a stereotype or preconceived notion. Most coverage of this story simple stated the beginning of his point, saying that Mr. Williams said he is afraid to sit near a Muslim on a plane. He was actually trying to dissuade viewers from such irrational reactions with no thought behind them. Shortly after they fired him, NPR had coverage where listeners called in and gave their opinion of the situation. After hearing many points made on both sides, and as a long time listener of NPR, I thought Mr. Williams should have been fired when he first signed on with FOX as it was a conflict of interests. Since NPR knowingly allowed Mr. Williams to continue employment for both media sources, I do not think he should have been fired for this incident. In no way do I condone hate, nor do I have any problems with Muslims. I simple don’t like one sided reporting. FILLER TEXT.
