Should journalists disclose their political beliefs?
“What if journalists disclosed their political views? Wouldn't that create more transparency and accountability around political news coverage?” Facebook Journalism Program Manager Vadim Lavrusik asked his more than 265,000 Facebook subscribers.
Lavrusik doesn’t think so. “I think it's a silly idea to think that it somehow makes journalists more objective if they don't disclose their political bent or to think that they don't have one.”
What do you think? Should journalists strive to appear neutral, or be more transparent about their opinions?
