Are you part of the Facebook-hating mob?

Read this from AdPulp:
Hugh Macleod is not part of the Facebook-hating mob... but he does like this critical Guardian piece on the politics behind the company.

Investigative journalist, Tom Hodgkinson, says he hates Facebook in his lead. He then delves into a deep background check on the money men behind the soc net.
Link.

An interesting report regarding Facebook. But the journalism is questionable. When a journalist expresses bias before "objectively" reporting the story two things occur. One, the integrity of the investigation is compromised due to the predetermined objective of the journalist. Two, by framing the story as an anti-Facebook article, the journalist sets the reader up for biased propaganda that is supposed to convince the reader to hate Facebook. And that is not journalism. It is a well researched essay at best or simply an op-ed piece.
