This morning I was attracted by the article in my Pioneer Press entitled “Trump ads target Minnesota, Wisconsin.” This article was doing so well for me, until I came to BIDEN’S ADS RESPOND. The first line which introduces Biden’s response begins like this: “Trump’s false depiction of Biden as a champion…”
What’s wrong with this? What’s wrong is the word “false.” Everything else is okay, but that word ruins the entire article. Why? Because journalists are supposed to report the news, not give their opinions. If there is one thing that turns me off to the media is when a reporter slips in his or her opinion of who is right or wrong. Come on; I just want to read the news. I don’t want your opinion. I can judge that for myself. If you were God or an angel or one of Christ’s apostles, I would gladly welcome your opinion, but you’re not.
I’m not against journalists reporting all the news. But when they tell you who is true or false, that’s bad reporting. The media’s job is to report the news, not tell you who they think is true or false. But I should have known that an article having anything to do with Donald Trump would be slanted toward the negative—because 99.99999 percent of all journalists are Democrat liberals who hate Trump! At least those who work for the Pioneer Press.
Well, anyway, now you know my frustration with reading the newspaper.; and why I prefer to read sports articles instead of the political news section. They just report what is happening in the sports world (unless Trump is mentioned), and some of those sports articles are very interesting to me.
