Dave Barry quote re Journalistic objectivity

I am a big fan of Dave Barry in small doses. I can’t read his books for very long because once you figure out that everything is a setup for the punchlines, it stops being funny. But here’s a small dose that got me laughing today when I read it in The Patriot, the thrice-weekly newsletter of The Federalist. My all-time favorite news source put out by Marc Alexander. Anyway, here’s the quote:

“We journalists make it a point to know very little about an extremely wide variety of topics; this is how we stay objective.”

—Dave Barry
