Dept. of Stupid Questions

      I normally have great respect for Patterico, but today he says's something incredibly stupid (sorry to be so blunt, but facts are facts).

      Writing about a piece in the Los Angeles Dog Trainer, Patterico asks
Can't they find anybody who understands the law, is willing to do a little research, and can write a fair article?

      Duh!  Of course they can, P.  But if they assigned their story to someone who'd write a fair, accurate, well-researched article, it would undercut their goal of deceiving the public.  The Times has given itself the difficult assignment of getting as criminals out of jail and back on the street.  How would giving people the facts help with that?

      "I'm surprised I have to explain these things to you."
