Episode Notes

If there’s anything you know about journalists, it’s probably that they’re supposed to be objective: relating just the facts, with no personal bias. But is that really possible—or a good thing to strive for—in the “post-truth” world we’re currently living in?

For this bonus episode of Just the Beginning, we’re sharing the first episode of The View from Somewhere, a podcast about journalism with a purpose, produced by Lewis Raven Wallace and Ramona Martinez. In it, Lewis shares the story of losing his job after raising questions about the value of journalistic objectivity.
