There's been growing debate over journalistic objectivity in the midst of global protests against systemic violence against African Americans, with feuds at The New York Times and elsewhere making headlines.
Fox 2 reporter Amy Lange waded in Tuesday, when she told a viewer her belief in the need for racial equality did not constitute bias.
On Facebook, Lange said she stated that "achieving racial equality was long overdue" in the station's 6:30 p.m. newscast. Within 30 minutes, someone was in her inbox telling her to "keep your opinions to yourself" and "just report the news."
She responded: "Not a matter of opinion – the need for racial equality is fact ... hopefully you can see past your own privilege to support human rights for all."
We'll say Lange's wish for equality is a start. Deadline Detroit objectively supports justice, as explained in the graphic below.
