In Part 2 of my interview with Dr. Anita Varma, we discuss how word choice and passive voice can infuse bias into coverage, the pros and cons of humanizing, and the importance of expanding our perspectives and seeking to answer the why.

She specializes in humanization and news, as well as applying ethics in the practice of journalism and media industries.
