Robert Olson: Biases in the media

August 19, 2018


You editorial this morning that defends your right to a free press demonstrates just why we should question your intent. A perfect example how the words you chose damage your credibility are those that claim CNN and MSNBC are “less conservative.” To connect either of those networks with a conservative thought, when independent analysis reports that 90 percent of their reports are anti- administration, that is plain and simple bias.

If you want to be believed and demonstrate credibility, report the truth in terms that do not imply a bias. Otherwise keep up what you are doing and lose more believability. After all, when you publish something your readers expect it to the truth stated clearly. Keep your opinions to the opinion page, please. And even there be honest.
