Randell Beck: The best reporters pursue truth

Beck: The best reporters pursue truth | | Argus Leader

"In an era increasingly shaped by ideological trench warfare - a media-saturated world in which folks are lured to consume prepackaged news mirroring their own narrow worldview - the very best reporters challenge authority, ask the hardest questions, challenge conventional thinking and hold accountable those who presume to speak for all of us - all with a relentless fidelity to the truth, 'without fear or favor.'"

Beck makes a good point.

However, you and I look at "truth" as being black and white.

Many (most) within politics and news journalism look at it as various shades of grey.
