Der Wampfler-Double-Blind-Effekt

Im Jahr 2020 auf das Phänomen des unverbrüchlichen Vertrauens in journalistische Arbeit zu verweisen –

You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. [...] You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward — reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them. In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.

– und diesen Verweis ausgerechnet auf einer Social Media-Plattform zu veröffentlichen, zeugt von einer beneidenswerten Distanz zur Situation der Medien nicht nur in den Kolonien.
