Journalists are journalists, but they are also rich or poor or middle class (probably the majority), fat or thin, lower or upper caste, men or women, left wing or right wing or neither. In other words, a journalist is not just a journalist. She or he carries baggage, from earlier socialization, from present day influences and from realities about which they had no choice such as gender or caste. Objectivity is the ideal all journalists strive for. We believe that our training equips us to distance ourselves as we report on a whole range of situations and comment on everything from films to fires to terrorism. Yet, scratch any journalist and you will soon discover that this objectivity is precisely that a desirable norm that cannot be easily attained. Only the more honest will admit that there can never be anything like "objective" journalism and that everything that we write is ultimately mediated by our own hidden or open biases. The choices we make in terms of what we include and what we leave out, the choices we make about what we emphasize, the choices we make about who we speak to and those we ignore, the choices we make about the stories we follow through and those we drop - all these are not dictated by some absolute or objective norms. Sometimes they are dictated by the orientation of our particular publication or media.
