The Vox piece “After Charlottesville, How do We Cover an Immoral President” has really had me thinking about how the news should cover events like what has taken place since the election of Trump. As someone who generally believes that a news outlet should be balanced and needs to publish the whole truth in a situation, news outlets should not shy away from condemning the actions of the president. While many will cry that there’s a liberal bias or that it is fake news, I no longer believe that this is an issue of politics, but an issue of morality. Trump’s refusal to condemn the acts of the White Nationalists and Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville to me isn’t an issue of being on the left or the right, but an issue of knowing what’s right and what’s wrong. To me, it is important that a news outlet doesn’t sugar-coat his actions and makes it know just how wrong his actions can be.
