Thomas Sowell

“Individual ad hoc filtering of what gets through the media to the public can readily add up to as complete a distortion of reality as if there were a conscious coordination by a heavy-handed censorship or propaganda – if those individual journalists and editors who do the filtering share the same general vision of what is and what ought to be. What seems plausible to those who share that vision can become the criterion of both believability and newsworthiness. Plausiblitiy, however, is the most treacherous of all criteria, for what will seem plausible in a particular case depends on what one already believes in general.”
