Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

Insight is one thing. OPINION is another completely. If it is an opinion/ editorial piece, sure, both label it AS such and include some personal opinions. But if it is presented as "straight" reporting (just the facts: who, where, when, how), leave the bias out or at least offer full disclosure of it. This new trend of media attempting to influence minds from divergent fields is WHY folks can't/won't trust Mainstream Media anymore (e.g.- reporters feeding Hillary debate questions in advance but not to her opponents). The Chronicle isn't presented as an "Alternative" newspaper, so extremists should stop acting put out that the paper's publisher doesn't want her reporters compromising journalistic ethics. There are more than enough news sources in this day & age so that we don't have to gripe that people are somehow not able to hear folks' opinions because straight news is upholding journalistic ethics (as it should). When one major news source takes on the role of Big Brother by telling us what to think instead of giving us a chance to formulate our own opinions based upon unvarnished facts, then you have BIG Gov't at it's worst right around the corner. Do even the Leftists want THAT(??)
