Diane Sawyer is laughed at when she asserts that journalists are fair and truthful

I am so glad this happened to her so that she can see how the public views her profession:

Diane Sawyer: "You know, I wanted to sit on a jury once and I was taken off the jury. And the judge said to me, 'Can, you know, can you tell the truth and be fair?' And I said, 'That's what journalists do.' And everybody in the courtroom laughed. It was the most hurtful moment I think I've ever had."
This is not the age of Edward R. Murrow and this reporters better get it that no one believes this anymore. We know that everyone is biased. They can't put their bias aside, it always comes out in the reporting. They can't help but look at the situation from their worldview.
