Neutrality in Journalism—-Is It Possible?
An issue which periodically emerges and engages passions on all sides of the political spectrum is the role and purpose of objectivity in journalism. Are the Glenn Becks and Keith Olbermanns of the world the future and fate of journalism or is there still a place for the much maligned “objective journalism” that we all learned about in civics classes?
Last year’s heated exchange between Olbermann and Ted Koppel was a much discussed flash point in the on-going debate.
Next week Community Advocates, in partnership with NPR station KPCC and its Airtalk broadcast with Larry Mantle, will grapple with this issue. On Thursday, April 28th at 6:30 we will have two exceptionally able advocates discuss this enduring and increasingly relevant issue before a live audience (at KPCC’s new home, The Crawford Family Forum at 474 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena) as it is taped for broadcast:
