I generally don’t just outsource a blog post (except for when reblogging Booknados). But this morning I was reading a post over at Popehat. For those who are unfamiliar with the site, Ken White and a band of merry lawyers writing about the law, mainly First Amendment issues and Criminal Law, but other things as well. It is one of the three places I go to read analysis about the law. (The other two are the Volokh Conspiracy and SCOTUSBlog). As I was scrolling through, I came across a post by Ken White I had missed previously titled: How to Read News Like a Search Warrant Application.
You must read this. It doesn’t matter where you fall on the political spectrum. (And based on the people who have subscribed to this blog, you folks are all over the map). It is a good reminder that reading things that confirm what you want to hear or read doesn’t mean you are getting an accurate view of the world.
So please, go read it.
