Notes From Babel

News Reporting Gripe

leave a comment »

Why is it that when a news reporter writes about a recent court ruling, no name or case number is ever provided?  How would I search for more information about the case if I were so inclined?  This is especially troubling when reading an older news article, as this one about a California court of appeal holding that parents have no constitutional right to homeschool their children (outrageous!).
