Who still believes Journalism is about objectivity?

Saturday, October 3, 2009

What I'm considering is if or how objective journalism could be profitable, if it was we wouldn't have this issue yes?

in reference to:

"“Objectivity is a construct of recent times. One reason for its rise in the journalism sphere has been the consolidation of newspapers and television into monopolies and oligopolies in the past half-century. If one voice overwhelms all the others, there is a public interest in playing stories as straight as possible — not favoring one side over the other (or others, to be more precise, as there are rarely just two sides to any issue)."
