Objective News is Pure News
A more objective method of presenting news simply cannot be found than to simply show you an event without comment and allow you to interpret that event according to what you actually see. Too many news events are colored inaccurately by biased reporting. Although there is a risk that an image or event can still be misinterpreted by uninformed observers unaware of contextual factors, that risk is offset by the greater risk that observers tend to regard reporters as experts in delivering news and, as a result, are more likely to be swayed by reporters' personal flare in reporting, tone and manner of presentation, and body language.
