Why America Is Failing – ‘Serious Ethical Questions Arising From Journalist’s Participation In Koch Event’
The Founding Fathers had a vision that the press would inform……not propaganda but holding the elected accountable and keeping the citizens informed and educated.
So which came first?
Or journalistic corruption?
‘ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl will moderate a forum featuring three prominent GOP Senators on Sunday at an event hosted by a conservative political organization that has been called “the Koch Brothers’ secret bank.”
‘While the event will be closed to media and the public — though streamed online — ThinkProgress has learned that ABC News will be paying for Karl’s travel and lodging for the Palm Springs, CA event’.
A private event – yet ABC news is paying for the so called journalists travel and lodging.
‘Politico reported on Thursday that Karl will ask questions of Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Marco Rubio (R-FL) at the “American Recovery Policy Forum,” hosted by the Kochs’ Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce’.
‘But some journalism ethics experts told ThinkProgress that this might cross the line from neutral reporting to aiding a political organization, as Karl’s presence lends a measure of credibility to billionaire oil magnates David and Charles Koch and their anti-government political network’.
