I dare you to read John Kroll's post about the five 5 Ws and H and tell me you don't agree.
He's right about the fact that expecting professional writers to apply this Journalism 101 principle to the concept of fact-checking should NOT require a half-day seminar, too. But damn. I got all goose-pimply reading this, and remembered why I wanted to be a journalist in the first place.
Sigh. So much for righteous dreams; I ended up as a freelance copywriter and taxicab driver. But hey, at least I can still get all goose-pimply.
Side note from copywriter me: I wonder how this page will rank for "goose-pimply."
