Objective Nonsense (part 14)

Here’s another take on journalistic “objectivity” — and on Chris Johns’ (bogus) claim about NGM’s “unbiased presentation of facts”:

“… Oh, I understand the argument: … reporters are supposed to be objective and express no political opinion and do nothing political. I went to J-school, too. And we could argue the point as if in a freshman seminar. I say this is merely a lie of omission, telling reporters to *conceal* their viewpoints and making listeners guess where they’re coming from (the audience knows that can’t be nowhere).”
