They Want Her Fired

I guess the First Amendment isn't any good any more in the United States—at least, not to some people. Emily Miller, reporter for Fox affiliate WTTF spoke to a pro-gun group and criticized gun control. The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) wants her FIRED for that. They say she “violated “journalistic ethics” by taking sides. “Citing the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), CSGV asserts that Miller should be fired from her job on the grounds that journalists should “act independently” by avoiding “conflicts of interest, real or perceived.” Strange that an outfit that “takes sides” every day should want her fired for doing so IN PRIVATE, not on the pages of a newspaper or on camera at Fox. As an American citizen, she is entitled to have her own opinion on things, and say so as ;long as it's not part of a news report. Something CSGV doesn't want to allow. I guess they think they're the only people who can spout one-sided lies as NEWS in the media. (Daily Caller)
