I suspect that many conservatives would regard this video interview of Joe Biden as an example of what journalism ought to be:

In fact, it’s nothing of the sort. It’s blatant partisanship, not objectivity.

I’ve never thought much about the proper standards of journalism — until I began fighting Colorado’s Amendment 48. So here are my preliminary thoughts: Journalists should ask difficult questions, particularly of politicians. However, those questions should be fair — not loaded with presumption and innuendo. So a journalist should allow a person to state his basic views, then dig deeper by asking some tough questions. The goal should be to expose the person’s views for what they are — good, bad, or ugly.
