A Tough Question: Should journalists vote?
That’s this week’s tough question, inspired by a New York Times article No Politics Till the 7th Date? How Journalists Stay Impartial. In particular, Tre’Vell and Jarrett responded to what journalist Peter Baker said:
As reporters, our job is to observe, not participate, and so to that end, I don’t belong to any political party, I don’t belong to any non-journalism organization, I don’t support any candidate, I don’t give money to interest groups and I don’t vote.
Spoiler alert: Tre’Vell and Jarrett don’t share this opinion.
Jarrett - Tatyana Ali
Tre’Vell - Oprah Winfrey
Jarrett - School cafeteria food
Tre’Vell - Chris Matthews
Jarrett - Mercury in retrograde
Go ahead and @ us
