Solomonia has posted an interview with the clear-minded Boston University Professor Richard Landes. Dr. Landes's project, "Second Draft", will compare the news reporting of the recent past with the primary sources from which the reports were gleaned. Even in the interview, he is able to look deeply into the abyss of bias, sensationalism and willful ignorance which distort our news. The Second Draft project itself should be available soon, and should be the most important sociological work of our young century.
Professor Landes' new web site, Second Draft, a project of 21st Century Media Group, will open to the public in early September. The URL would be released at that time.
