She added that both sides werenot the same,” and also urged fellow reporters totell votersthe GOP was a “脅威” to freedom.

She wondered to Dowd how the media couldget outof this‘both sides’ trajectory,” to which he advised the media to act as though they were living in a society that wasn’t free and treat Republicans accordingly.

Just a week earlier, CNN primetime host Don Lemon also shot down the idea Republicans and Democrats should be afforded equal footing in media coverage.

We cannot have a false sense of equivalency about what is happening when it comes to politics in our country. There is one party, たった今, that is not operating in fact, that has been misleading the American people, and that is the Republican Party, 悲しいことに, which I used to be a member of… years ago,” レモンは言った.

Fellow CNN host Brian Stelter also questioned whether Republicans should be given the same coverage as Democrats in December, during a discussion with Los Angeles Times columnist Jackie Calmes on her piece condemingboth-siderism.

Is it that we’re treating Democrats and Republicans equally and ignoring GOP radicalism? Is that the heart of the problem?” Stelter asked.

Last March, NBC News anchor Lester Holt received praise from other liberal media figures after saying reporters don’t need to hear both sides of a story in order to determine what the “真実” です.

I think it’s become clear that fairness is overratedthe idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in,” Holt said at the time.

He later said that a reporter’s duty is to befair to the truthand called on others to not give contrary views time or attention.

Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, 実際には, it’s just the opposite,” 彼が追加した.

Similar arguments have also been made by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, New York Times Magazine writer and 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones, as well as former New Republic editor Peter Beinart and former TIME managing editor Richard Stengel.

Results published from a June Pew Research Center survey of nearly 12,000 journalists revealed a majority don’t believe both sides deserve equal coverage.

The poll found 55% said every sidedoes not always deserve equal coverage,” 一方 44% said journalists should strive to report on both sides of an issue.

Seemingly conflicting with this previous response, an overwhelming majority of journalists, 82%, said the press should keep their personal views out of their reporting, だけ 55% told Pew that they think that journalists are succeeding at this goal.
