Honesty, balance often missing
Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Your editorial about not being the enemy has a lot of good points on the responsibility of the media. I never took Journalism 101 but I’m guessing what you wrote was presented in that course. I noted that, either by mistake or deliberately, the words “honestly” and “fairly” were missing.
On many occasions I have found opinions expressed in news articles, especially in AP stories. I would also say that your choices of columns are decidedly one-sided. And quite often I see letters to the editor that contain totally false information and also in the Bless Your Heart articles. I assume that you feel that you have no responsibility for honesty or fairness.
How many times have CNN and The New York Times and others had to apologize for providing false information?
