In this episode, we talk with Dana Sitar… Freelance writer & editor in personal finance, careers, and digital media. Dana recently wrote a piece for The Poynter Institute exploring how using the passive voice in journalism can lead to accusations of bias… taking sides… or obscuring responsibility. Our conversation focused on how journalists have historically used language… and how in this moment, we have an opportunity to identify and reckon with our biases… our verbal crutches… and our ingrained habits. Doing this can help journalists and other content creators be more inclusive of… and accountable to everyone in the audiences… and strengthen trust with the community.
