Re: Being pro-police

This is to answer audiophile's question. The problem with being "pro-police," even occasionally, for a journalist is that it is tipping the story in favor of the police and being biased rather than being balanced. Simply reporting what police say, without scrutiny, is journalism malpractice. See thi...

Re: Being pro-police

We may never know if something was hidden. When a person is the spokesperson/consultant for the police and a journalist, there's no way to know. There's no check and balance, just one side.

Re: Being pro-police

That's the problem. When he's acting as a public information officer for the police department, as he has in the past, he is speaking on behalf of a police department. Any good public information office will paint the organization it works for in the best light. Therefore, working for the police and...

Re: Being pro-police

Jack "ad hominem" Attack, See your first post for the proof you so allegedly desire. Attacking a person rather than the argument is the basis of your conversation. If you checked Bill's bio page, you'll find 17 of 34 stories are positive pieces on police. Zero stories of any criticism on anything re...

Re: Being pro-police

Welcome back, Jack "ad hominem" Attack! Seems like you're having difficulty refuting logic. Here it is again: When a journalist is getting paid by an organization and then does positive stories on said organization, that's called payola (See George Stephanopoulos). Feel free to defend this practice.

Re: Being pro-police

I'm saying you won't find stories critical of police or police departments on Bill Harris' page because he won't do them. Feel free to pitch those kinds of stories his way, but don't expect him to cover them. His bio shows a clear conflict of interest: "Bill has also distinguished himself in the are...

Being pro-police

A journalist should be objective. He/She should tell a fair and balanced not only in the selection of a story, but in the telling of a story. I don't see that with Bill Harris. Look at his bio and the majority of stories he has covered is about police. The stories are pro-police. http://www.minbcnew...

Re: Dressed not to impress

Then why, TheForce, have many companies done away with casual Friday?

Why have many schools gone to uniforms?

And by the way, the period goes inside the quotation marks.

Dressed not to impress

Whatever happened to professionalism in the way news reporters dressed? Over the past few years there have been reporters in jeans, ball caps, and check out this guy in a Hawaiian t-shirt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L4HN-Vm5sg Granted, he is reporting in Hawaii, but come on, he looks like a tou...
