Objectivity in the news: Finding a way forward

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 25 (1):19 – 33 (2010)
Abstract
Many media critics believe news reports are inevitably biased and have urged journalists to abandon the objectivity norm. I show that the main arguments for inevitable bias fail but identify factors that make producing objective news difficult. I indicate what the next steps should be to understand bias in the news and to combat it
