Meet 'Joe moderate'

Jay Rosen

    Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


    The neutrality shown by journalists when they decline the labels 'liberal' and 'conservative' and identify instead as moderates is discussed. These journalists develop a kind of apolitical interest in politics. Their political affiliation is not so much private as irrelevant because a principle is involved in their work. If journalists are more up front about their affiliations and leanings, then their reporting and its truthfulness can more easily be judged. Disclosure makes a journalist more human and more believable.
