A quick note to mark just one example of the ongoing changes at the liberal AJC.
In the “old days” the game was to find a source who would give a quote backing up and advancing the AJC agenda. For the last several years – we don’t have time to track all the countless examples – that practice morphed into un-sourced insertions of “fact” into news stories.
Here is a recent case: “Stalled pot decriminalization efforts irk backers in Gwinnett” on page A 12 of the hard copy version, Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021.
It’s a story about disappointment that commissioners in metro-Atlanta’s Little California, Gwinnett County, have not yet decriminalized possession of less than an ounce of weed. The thought is that very diverse areas should know better than to punish people for violation of marijuana laws.
With attribution from nobody, the liberal AJC assures confident readers that “Marijuana laws disproportionally affect minorities. Stricter punishments not only put more people in jail, but can hurt employment options down the road.”
