Authority lost, argument won

Arguably one of Sydney's leading broadsheet daily newspapers, the Sydney Morning Herald is promoting a debate about whether or not America has lost its moral authority.

One clue as to the likely outcome of the debate may be found in the title - "America has lost its moral authority."

Representing the affirmative is Herald journalist, Paul McGeough - the plonker who reported that the Iraqi Prime Minister was a murderer and that civil war in Iraq was pretty much inevitable. After these escapades, it's not clear how McGeough is expected to have any authority at all.

It's media companies like these that have lost moral authority. Ahead of them, as the likely new regime takes over, lies the choice: start telling it like it is, or continue to report stuff like "massive increases in shoe and boot production at factory #365."
