Jay Ruby of Temple University offers a unique perspective in this debate on being objective. If I understand him correctly, we as a group of people, try to reflect that which we know, learn, and experience onto those willing to do so. So, in effect, no matter how the project is conducted, those doing the teaching will none-the-less be persuading the audience to see the situation in a way that is dictated. Dispite all the journalistic approaches read and discussed in media and criticism journals, this debate can never be resolved. As for the "Stand Up In Front Of The White House" question posed some posts back, did anyone feel that it was a matter of aesthetics over anything else or was the sole purpose to persuade?
