Just to clear things up

Dear TV news media personalities:

Allow me to explain something to you, because apparently you still don’t get it.

If you conduct interviews with high-ranking government officials and CEO’s, perform follow-up research on their claims, and report the entire story with some semblance of independent inquiry, then you may call yourself a reporter.

If you conduct interviews with high-ranking government officials and CEO’s, and merely give them a platform to spew their claims at face value with no adversarial retort, then you are not a reporter. You are only a host.

I hope that clears things up for you.
