How May Journalists Seek 'Truth'?

In Front Lines of Journalism, BBC Radio 4 series 7-11 May 2023, Jeremy Bowen discussed the challenges of journalism. One of these (Episode 4) is about the value or otherwise of "lived experience" in reporters. For example, should black reporters always be sent to report on issues involving black people? Likewise for Muslim, Christian, Gay, working-class, upper-class, women on women's issues, and so on.

This so often is treated as a binary question, Yes versus No, but it was shown to be much more nuanced. One editor said he would always want to send the "best" reporters - which sounds good, until we ask what "best" means.

I find that Dooyeweerd's aspects and his understanding of everyday experience can help us cut through all this [the following 'first pass' to be tidied up and shortened].

This page, "", is part of a collection that discusses application of Herman Dooyeweerd's ideas, within The Dooyeweerd Pages, which explain, explore and discuss Dooyeweerd's interesting philosophy. Email questions or comments are welcome.
