Journalistic ethics, objectivity, existential journalism, standpoint epistemology, and public journalism
Journal of Mass Media Ethics 16 (1):3 – 22 (2001)
Objective journalism is blamed frequently for all sorts of journalistic failures and weaknesses, but the critiques typically are flawed because their authors fail to understand objectivity or to define it precisely. This defense of objective journalism defines objectivity and suggests that it is indispensable in a free society, summarizes major critiques of and alternatives to objectivity, and proposes that critics and defenders might serve journalism best by seeking common ground.
