I need to make a positive comment about the news and give credit where it is due. I compliment, Denis O’Hayer, a white, middle-class man who is known for his fair coverage of the news and his mentorship of others. I hope his professional standards will be carried forward by his colleagues. He will be missed on Morning Edition on NPR.
Balanced reporting is one of the bricks in the foundation of Democracy. Writing the facts without interjecting your opinion is not easy. Ethics are involved. It is a honed skill held by too few reporters in our entertainment-driven media.
I thank Denis and wish him well.
