Journalism We Can Trust

Journalism we can trust, does it still exist?

How do we know if we can trust a reporter?

Simple.

If you can tell how the reporter "feels" about something, then he/she has failed to be a true reporter, which is an objective reporter, and therefore you can't trust them.

Journalism once was about reporting "just the facts, ma'am."

Sadly, no matter which television news channel you support by your viewing minutes or hours, none of them can be trusted all of the time.

Most of the reporters are entertainers, not journalists.

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glen Beck are all being paid to stir up controversy, not report on the news.

Same thing goes for the people over at the other news channels, but I don't know their names, so obviously they are not as good at it as the ones I've mentioned.

The only reporters I follow with any sense of the possibility of true reporting are John King and Anderson Cooper at CNN. I also enjoy Charlie Gibson on ABC news, most of the time.

Fox news has come under scrutiny once again for their misleading video excerpts used under false pretenses... read all about it at Brumbies-Pegasus.com.
