Do you believe it is possible to judge facts independently of morals? Sure. In fact I believe it is essential to do so. Fact finding is the first part of a moral analysis but it is not the analysis itself.I don't agree with your example on a factual basis. I think Marijuana has significant health risks, ask one of my dear friends who just (lucky for her) beat throat cancer, due to a rather intense pot habit.But your point is taken. Had you said:Alcohol is a seriously intoxicating drug with significant health risks. I would agree that this is true even if I agree that alcohol should remain legal.My point is that the job of the journalist is to get step 1 right - get the facts. The reason the profession is so broken is that they have extended their mandate far past that.
