18. I don't believe you need to remain "neutral" to be a good journalist.

On the contrary, if the facts tell you Trump is an asshole, that's what you should report. But then I guess it depends on what you mean by neutral. I have seen the press remain far too "neutral" over the last 20 years or so, resulting in a false equivalency that helped Trump's to get elected. Objective doesn't necessarily mean neutral. But its easy to get tangled up in the semantics of this.
