I have a question about a phrase here[edit]

The article says at one point (Under "Objectivity", second paragraph, third sentence)

"This may sound like a radical idea, but..."

This doesn't sound like a very wikipedia-ish thing to say. Should this be fixed or am I wrong?

Thanks.

I agree with this, and I changed it to sound more neutral! Lbrossea (talk) 22:11, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

History of advocacy journalism and objectivity[edit]

I thought that the history section could do with some work, so I plan on expanding it slightly, and also adding to the section about objectivity? It seems like there aren't a lot of citations so I hope to add some more of those as well... Any thoughts? Lbrossea (talk) 22:13, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

also considering adding a modern day section which talks about alternative media as advocacy journalism, the fall of objectivity, etc. Lbrossea (talk) 23:16, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
