Jones, Jonathan (2011) "Museums should feel free to charge admission", The Guardian, 21/07, accessed 23/07/2011 at, http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/jonathanjonesblog/2011/jul/21/museums-charging-admission-entry-fees
Jones has therefore sought to mask his preconceived, subjective point of view behind what appears to be a reasoned response to two current events (namely vandalism and cuts to state funding).
Attitudes towards the financing and management of museums vary. This is why we need to aim for consensus based on genuine debate. However, for this to succeed we must be on the lookout for poorly argued, prejudiced dogma masquerading as balanced journalism. For an excellent example of this we need look no further than Jonathan Jones's thoughts on whether or not we should pay to enter our national museums.
