Chronicle columnist Rachel Rose attempted to discuss some problems in the news media last Saturday.
She rightly pointed to some of the overblown language used and what is often a preponderance of opinion over facts.
She failed to point to the behaviour of many in the media, particularly in the United States, who have replaced journalistic
reporting of the news with partisan political campaigning.
When we look at the television news, pick up a newspaper or look at online news, we are not particularly interested in whether the journalists like or dislike the people they are reporting on. We are interested in the facts — the balanced, unbiased reporting of the news.
Okay, we get it — many people in the media do not like US President Donald Trump. We get their dislike stuffed down our throats at every possible opportunity, while the facts of the news are twisted or simply unreported.
