How to be a reporter that people trust

The biggest problem with “journalism” today is not that the reporter(s) is sadistically owned by some subversive foreign operative, nor that those acting as reporters are necessarily malicious and deliberately trying to conceal facts and suborn public opinion by way of unethical manipulation of images or withholding information important to the public in understanding what is actually happening. It’s not even that almost every reporter is totally biased.

Most of the time all that isn’t even true. The problem is much simpler than all that.

People reporting today have forgotten that there is such a thing as just reporting the news: they feel every report must be some kind of editorial or investigative opinion. Just report the news, all the news, without omitting or altering anything. Let us decide what we think: just report the news. We want to know how the current event will affect the working class American citizen.
