Great Moments in Media Objectivity

A former Newsweek journalist fantasized about disabling Rudy Giuliani. And how does he feel about objectivity?

“There’s no pretending to be objective. What we’re fighting to save here is our city, our culture, and by extension, our jobs, our houses, our schools. When we write this s—, we don’t just report the stuff and let it fall where it may. We’ve got way too much at stake to be dispassionate observers covering a sporting event and not caring who wins,” Rose said in an interview with Vermont Web site, 7D.

He's correct about one point. This year, there is no pretending to be objective on the part of many reporters.
