LOL: Corporate Media Now Say “Objectivity” Is RACIST

(SNews) – Major corporate media outlets have announced that they will no longer use “objectivity” in reporting because it is now, apparently, considered to be “racist.”

According to several Big Media hacks, “objectivity” is a racist relic of “white newsrooms.”

They argue that objectivity reinforces a racist “view of the world” that has been “dictated” by “male editors” over the years.

The decision emerged following a series of interviews conducted by former CBS News President Andrew Heyward and former executive editor for The Washington Post Leonard Downie Jr.

“The media figures argued that journalists should include their own beliefs, biases, and experiences to convey truth and that journalistic objectivity was either unrealistic or undesirable,” the Daily Caller reports.

Downie Jr. argues that objectivity distorts the news because the standard “was dictated over decades by male editors in predominantly white newsrooms and reinforced their own view of the world.”

The editor-in-chief at the San Francisco Chronicle, Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, put it even more explicitly.

“Objectivity has got to go,” Garcia-Ruiz declared.

Downie Jr. insisted that covering both sides of a story, particularly one “about race, the treatment of women, LGBTQ+ rights, income inequality, climate change, and many other subjects,” prevents individuals who belong to such groups from “pursuing truth in their work.”

Interestingly, the types of stories mentioned by Downie Jr. are all related to left-wing talking points.

Kathleen Carroll, the former executive editor at the Associated Press, asserts that objectivity was a standard set by “white, educated, and fairly wealthy” people.

Therefore, objectivity should be abolished, Carroll declared.

As Chris Menahan points out, journalists dispensing with objectivity are actually serving to bury the truth.

In one such example, the New York Times reported the claim of a 12-year-old girl being racially bullied by referring to her as “black” and her bullies as “white”.

After it emerged that the claims had been totally invented and the story was a lie, they removed both “black” and “white” from subsequent reporting of the story.

“What we found has convinced us that truth-seeking news media must move beyond whatever ‘objectivity’ once meant to produce more trustworthy news,” said Downie Jr., obfuscating the fact that jettisoning objectivity actually achieves the exact opposite of “truth-seeking.”

“Their statements are all objectively idiotic but they don’t even realize it because they’ve abandoned all objectivity!” remarked Menahan.

In 2021, so-called “fact-checking” institute Poynter demanded that local news stations reduce coverage of stories that connect “black and brown communities” to violent crime because it is fueling “systemic racism.”

They are literally at war with truth.
