Nonpartisan News Reporting in an Age of Partisanship
Panel Presentation: Alec Klein, Edward Klein, Shen Wu Tan & Madeline Thulin

In a divided world, where can people find the truth in news? In Europe, the United States and elsewhere, journalists often take sides, presenting news with an unvarnished bias. To wit: Witness the news coming out of Ukraine. Propaganda is part and parcel of war. But now it is even more underscored, fueled by social media, as Russia has created draconian laws, with the threat of imprisonment, to prohibit the media from using the word “war” to describe the horrors unfolding in Ukraine. This is where the Wyoming Truth comes in. As a nonprofit news operation, we seek to cover the news in a nonpartisan way, to allow people to make up their own minds about the news, whether it’s about politics, criminal justice, or anything else. News media has, of course, undergone significant tectonic shifts over the past centuries; indeed, it was in the United Kingdom that the tabloid form was invented and exported to the United States. But the impartiality of news has given way to something of a free-for-all in news coverage today. We hope to help restore a journalism that fosters confidence in fairness, impartiality and accuracy.
