Rem Rieder's column on "Daydream Believers" makes reference to the concept of 50-50 treatment in news stories and he rightfully concludes that such a rule is misleading. One wonders, however, if journalistic objectivity can be questioned on a different basis. The MSM treatment of the "60 Minutes" story on President Bush's service in the National Guard comes to mind. In addition, I would offer up the treatment of Sarah Palin's performance in the vice presidential debate versus that of Joe Biden. While her credibility was examined in light of her inexperience, Sen. Biden's missteps were left untouched. 50-50 is not the answer, but if one is to examine the truthfulness or accuracy of one candidate, then the opposing candidate should be examined as well.

The rapid demise of news providers is in no small part due to the lack of trust the consumer has for those who are "telling us like it is!" I am certain you would agree that news is one of the most important factors in maintaining a healthy democracy. I submit to you that the press has much to answer for and only the press can fix it. After all, the First Amendment does protect your right to choose your topics and how stories are covered. Self-restraint and fairness are difficult to maintain, but they also have been lacking for a long time.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
