No Wolf, we won’t take it easier on journalists that are not Ethical, Accurate and Fair.
Wolf Blitzer pleads for Trump to take it easier on journalists covering his rallies, ‘These are hardworking young journalists. They deserve some security.’
At PolitOpinion we believe that “Hard working Americans deserve ethical, accurate and fair journalism. Americans deserve integratory and should not fear that we are being lied to.”
To Wolf we say: “Journalists covering Trump rallies currently present a skewed, negative lens on Trump and his supporters. When those journalists focus on Clinton lies and balance their reporting they will receive the respect they deserve, until then they should be scared and should know that their false reporting is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.”
These very journalists are the root cause of what’s wrong with this country and through the world, young journalists are trained to present to the world through a skewed lens, journalism should be objective, balanced and truthful.
To quote the Society of Professional Journalists: “Ethical journalism should be accurate and fair. Journalists should be honest and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.” If you are not prepared to maintain this standard then organizations like ABC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS and FOX should consider rebranding as “Political Satire” Sites.
If you are a Professional Journalist and reading this I would like you to answer this for me: “Why are Wall street executive willing to pay $500,000 for a speech from Hillary Clinton? Surely if her words and advice is so valuable young banking executives would be clambering to attend her free speeches and there would be no need for the Clinton campaign to be paying people to fill seats at $50 a pop.”
There is a treasure trove of information coming out of WikiLeaks on Hillary Clinton and her lies, investigate it, report on it and before you quote ethics, remember The New York Times executive editor said during a visit to Harvard in September that he would risk jail to publish Donald Trump’s tax returns. The Times published Trump tax documents from 1995, which show the Republican presidential nominee claimed losses of $916 million that year — enough to avoid paying federal income taxes for as many as 18 years. Federal law makes it illegal to publish an unauthorized tax return or “return information”
Blitzer pleaded with Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway for the Republican nominee to take it easier on members of the press.
“They go to all the rallies, they’re in this pen, he points to them, he sort of eggs the crowd on to go after them,” Blitzer said. “And they’re a lot of young journalists there. They’re scared sometimes.”
“I know them all, I respect them all,” Conway began to answer, before Blitzer cut her off.
“He shouldn’t be doing that,” Blitzer fired back. “Could you talk to him and say to him, ‘Mr. Trump, we only have a few days left. These are hardworking young journalists. They deserve some security.'”
Conway attempted to partially shift the blame to journalists themselves, who she said were being overly negative in their coverage of Trump.
“Their Twitter feed is for some of them, we’ve done an analysis, 85, 90% negative towards Donald Trump,” Conway said. “You didn’t hear anything good to say?
There’s nothing good to report that day that you would actually put in your Twitter feed? So I think the responsibility has to go both ways.”
