Journalists Suggest Abandoning Objectivity

According to a journalism professor at Arizona State University, the media is too neutral and values “objectivity” too highly (really!?):

Professor Leonard Downie, the former executive editor of The Washington Post, recently wrote that “newsrooms are debating whether traditional objectivity should still be the standard for news reporting”…  Downie notes that some journalists are abandoning objectivity, which he argued that this is a good change of pace.

This abandonment of any western cultural norms reeks of desperation.  It’s almost as if there is an innate fear that they can’t win the debate on the merits of their arguments.  Thus, they resort to the Leftist/Moslem cultural norms of “win at any cost, including lying and cheating”.

An pertinent quote: “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” – Socrates
