I am the first to defend the media from people who scream about false narratives...but I also recognize that journalists' implicit bias plays out in their writing and photo selection. I believe it's usually not intentional, but this is why cultural competency and "unlearning" our biases are both essential to objective journalism. I thank you for calling attention to this important issue.
