them and become more biased; I have witnessed this
many times with acquaintances involved in the
ecumenical movement. Journalists on the other hand are
supposed to be unbiased and have no stake in the
outcome. Now in the real world that doesn't happen
all the time but I think that it would be foolish to
trust "our people"* and not journalists, or
vice-versa. We need both kinds of information--first
hand, personal knowledge that comes from the
participants, and the kind of knowledge one gets from
those with no vested interest (as much as can be hoped
for) providing an outside analysis.
