What Should a Reporter Be?

Helen Thomas, sometimes called “The Crazy Aunt in the Attic,” said on Canadian television, “I’m a liberal, I was born a liberal, I’ll be one ’til I die, what else should a reporter be when you see so much and when we have such great privilege and access to the truth?”

Uh, how about “objective” Helen? When I was in journalism school, that’s what I was taught.
