Quote of the day:
“. . . The country’s best-read blogs are all political, they’re all partisan, and they make no apology for it. Indeed, journalists in the mainstream media might learn a thing or two from that: television viewers and newspaper readers would prefer that journalists be transparently partisan than pretend to some high-and-mighty objectivity that nobody can ever really achieve. Everyone has a world view, and it affects how they interpret and report the events around them. That’s called being human. . . . ” Jonathan Milne
Journalists in the mainstream media, especially if it’s state owned, have a duty to be balanced, fair and objective.
That doesn’t mean not having views, it means not letting those views cloud their judgement or influence their work.
