Speaking at PolitiFact’s “virtual festival of fact-checking” 월요일에, Stelter was asked about how networks like CNN can improve on being “objective” and seek a “balance in fairness” in its coverage.
Stelter responded in part by boasting CNN’s reporting on the embattled governor.
“When the New York governor is embroiled in multiple scandals, CNN can’t ignore it. And thankfully we haven’t of course,” Stelter said. “And there’s been great work by [Jake] Tapper and Brianna [케일라] and by New York Bureau correspondents work over there, 알 잖아, but that kind of news coverage, 나는 생각한다, is seen by viewers as a sign that we are playing it straight, and that we are being fair. And I would like to believe that every day, when we wake up, when we work in these newsrooms we work for these organizations, we can either win a little bit of trust or we can lose a little bit of trust.
그는 계속했다, “I do believe that in lots of small ways every day, journalists are winning trust back. It’s hard to measure, and it’s never going to be as newsworthy as big screw-ups or anonymous source failures, but I do think it’s happening every day in small ways.”
