Adam Curry writes a moving piece about the true story behind Pim Fortuyn’s assassination in the Netherlands. His point is more valid than many realize. I’ve been on the spot a few times when newsworthy events happened, and I’ve never seen an accurate portrayal of the truth in the media. Robert Heinlein said the same thing back in the fifties or sixties, so it’s not a new phenomenon. It’s curious (and potentially ground-moving) that the most accurate and up to date information about September 11th came from amateur weblogs that day. Why can’t the media get it right?
