While reading this post I kept In mind of two main questions that consist of did they make the right decision and what does this mean for the media and journalists. Notable statements were made in this article to persuade and give information about quotes and statements being said by the president.
In this article, they talked about the difference between insensitive and racist and who makes the decision on when the line is “crossed”. Is someone more sensitive toward that subject so they biased it more racially? Journalism gives a story not based on opinions but the information given that they can give detail too. Accountability, truth-telling, fairness, etc. are what give journalism its power to be reliable. It gives facts and statements about what happened. Keeping that in mind like they said its journalism, not opinion writing or philosopher, its just journalism. with that being said I think to make the comment that trump being racist and saying racist quotes can be very biased depending on the person and where someone draws the line. Others are more touchy and sensitive to different subjects.
For the media and journalist, this means there can and will be many different views of their opinion and how this situation is labeled. Everyone has a different opinion and the media and journalist can attack and describe what they want the audience to hear. This creates different fan bases of different opinions which causes drama which leads to confusion. This can also create buzz for the media and journalism which can also be a good thing. Overall depending on the information you give and how you want people to view it can depict how you are looked at as a reliable reference.
