Because complete objectivity is impossible, the first rule for any journalist pursuing any story is to have a working theory or thesis.

But the second step is to always be looking for, and to be open to, the possibility that the working theory or thesis is wrong.

Here in the USA, these days, it seems too many journalists have cast aside that second step, thus too often, instead of reporting a story they are simply pushing an agenda, irregardless of the story or even of journalistic ethics.

Compelling article (and great photos!). It explores, courageously, a side of "the story" that's rarely examined.
