Why does who hate whom?
: The American Society of Newspaper Editors is meeting in D.C. this week. A few panel topics:
: “The bias question: the news of affirmation vs. verification” with Eric Alterman, Gerald Boyd, Kathryn Lopez of NRO, and Tom Rosenstiel. I don’t understand even the title.
: “Vigilant Editor: Identifying and surviving ethical controversies in your newsroom.” Fill in punchline here.
: And my favorite: “Why do they hate us? Perspectives on the evolution of hostile attitudes toward the United States” with David Ignatius of The Washington Post, Hafez Al-Mirazi of Al-Jazeera TV (who appears on more panels than I do), author Irshad Manji, and others. Or should that be: Why We Hate Us?
