Kincaid tidbit on Navasky, opinion journalism and media bias

From a Cliff Kincaid column today on media bias:
Victor Navasky, publisher of The Nation and now chairman of the Columbia Journalism Review, wrote an article for the Los Angeles Times under the headline, "Objectivity is Highly Overrated." He argued for more "opinion journalism" from the media.

He'll get his wish. The trouble is that the opinion journalism is being provided under the cover of objective reporting.
