It's either unsupportable ingenuousness or willful deceit.

We live in two worlds, as I've said before--the real world, which is mean, depressing and ultimately deadly, and the world of such patriotic journalism, which is thoroughly false, though it is regarded by most people as the ideal world. If you deprived people of this patriotic journalism, if you ripped it our of their hands and took it off their computers, once and for all, you'd deprive them of more or less everything. Hence, there's nothing people cling to so much, nothing they rely on so much, as patriotic journalism. Patriotic journalism is their salvation. What they demand of this patriotic journalism is an ideal image of themselves, and they will agree to anything that produces this image, even the most dreadful distortion. It never strikes them how appallingly they compromise themselves.

Bifurcation...ridiculous hand-waving...every bit as odious
as what you claim is patriotic...go smoke another blunt

truth aint good for you guys, I have nothing to disagree with rhubroma, infact everything to agree with

"patriotic" journalism. This century saw a whole lotta "patriotic". And underlying subtext more pernicious effects

:D:D

but seriously, the number of critical, well-informed articles on doping in german press (including the bigger national newspapers) is striking.
That's not to say they're unbiassed. Yes there is a negative bias towards cycling (and perhaps towards spain, but who can blame them?).
:D But seriously you need to translate them and post them in here:D

Hopefully one of their Journalists, in the true sense, is investigating a certain team as we speak
