News Flash: Campaign Reporters Aren’t Objective

At least he’s honest. Newsweek campaign reporter Michael Hastings on campaign reporters:

Objectivity is a fallacy. In campaign reporting more than any other kind of press coverage, reporters aren’t just covering a story, they’re a part of it—influencing outcomes, setting expectations, framing candidates—and despite what they tell themselves, it’s impossible to both be a part of the action and report on it objectively.

It would be nice if the rest of the media would be so open about their own utterly corrupt biases.
