    • English World Service; at, 10 Sep 2015 on Radio Sputnik, Moscow. Pre-recorded radio interview by phone. Questions addressed:1. Media bias is running ever more rampant…Is it at all realistic to hope for an unbiased coverage of events? 2. Isn’t the media more often than not pushing an agenda? 3. Take a news source – it should be as unbiased as possible when presenting the news. One doesn’t want a political spin - just the facts. But is that at all possible? 4. Of course, the problem with the news media being impartial is that things don't happen in a vacuum. It's almost impossible to report on events without talking about why things are happening when reporting... he information itself is only a tiny portion of what the news business is about : it’s the packaging, the personalities and presentation. It’s also ultimately the responsibility of the consumer of the news to weed out what's fact and what's a biased statement, surely? 5. Can a journalist be inherently objective? Is it a moral issue? Or professional?.
