‘Share this with Jim Acosta’! DC reporter’s ‘refreshing approach to journalism’ earns HUGE round of applause

The number of people who go by the title “journalist” but who make their personal opinions loud and clear has skyrocketed since the election of Donald Trump as president. NBC4 DC reporter Shomari Stone sees the purpose of the job differently than some of his media colleagues:

Some of you send me DMs asking my personal opinions about Trump, race relations & politics. It’s a waste of your time asking. I am a journalist. I’m not a commentator or pundit. I report the news objectively, fairly and keep my opinions to myself. Hope this helps you understand.

Many think there are a lot of people who fancy themselves as reporters who should strive for that standard.

I think a lot of “journalists” in the MSM should take some pointers from @shomaristone. Good for you, Shomari https://t.co/fMtAWdsWXI

I wish more journalists practiced that type of reporting and left their opinions to the Op-Ed page.
