It was like attending a basic journalism class. Sitting in room full of farmers following overheads on different types of media interspersed with stories of how the media have done them wrong made me want to shrink.
Oh, everyone was very nice, don't get me wrong. But pork producers have a bit of a chip on their shoulder where the whole swine flu/H1N1 comes in.
The funny thing is this. The title of the 27th Annual Rural Legislative Forum was Headline Vs. Fact: Agriculture's impact and response to food outbreaks, pandemics, and environmental emergencies.
The topic was about how newspapers can skew things with their headlines.
The irony is, I found the headline of their forum to be skewing the facts.
Of course, headlines and facts are not diametrically opposed, but it would sure seem that way according to their headline wouldn't it?
