Is there really such a thing as objectivity?
“Objective” coverage of an issue – or “objectivity” – is understood to mean coverage that is not influenced by the personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice of a reporter. Instead it is based on facts and presents the many sides of an issue.
Can a journalist be truly objective? How can issues such as peace and conflict be reported with objectivity? How can a journalist resist the bias of editors, funders, or advertisers?
