Report on Racism, but Ditch the Labels.

The NPR last week decided to use the term “racist”, when referring to our president Donald Trump. Trump had recently tweeted about a congress woman, and the tweets were deemed racist by the NPR. I believe that the NPR’s decision on calling Donald Trump Racist is morally wrong, and not something we should be doing when talking about our country’s leader. I think the media could have definitely received Trump’s message without using the terms “racist”, or “racially charged”. I believe that this has caused many people to firmly believe that Trump is a racist, simply because the journalist who wrote the article, decided to use a term that slanders Trumps name. Intentional or not i believe that journalism is becoming more about the narrative, rather than the facts, Every single journalist has an opinion and I believe that calling Donald Trump racist is more of an opinion rather than it is actual news.
