Investigating One Of Their Own
By: Mark Winter
This week in Detroit, we saw local news outlets buzz about a prominent morning news anchor on FOX 2 and her alleged involvement in a Detroit city sludge contract under federal investigation.
From a news standpoint, it was incredibly interesting to watch this investigative report done by the FOX station regarding the situation. I thought the report was fair and balanced as a viewer. Like any investigative piece, the reporter told the chronology of what was uncovered through fact finding and presented viewers with the results. Sitting in a conference room faced with these tough decisions, I’m sure was difficult for the station’s management and news decision-makers. In my opinion, FOX 2 executed what all news outlets should–show no bias. Unfortunately, in this case, the topic was one of their own.
