Welcome to part two of our discussion of Serial, the insanely popular podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig. In part one, we discussed objectivity in the law. This week, we're turning our attention to objectivity in journalism. Journalists have been tasked with objective reporting for decades, but is that a realistic goal? Can any journalist be truly objective? Is Serial an example of failed objectivism, or is it a reminder of its impossibility? Watch the episode to learn more, and tell us what you think!
