Kasie Hunt Talks About Difficulties Of Being Political Reporter In Today's Scenario
As much as she has gained success as a political journalist, Kasie has found a lot of difficulties while working as a political reporter, especially in modern times when political divide is so large that slight mishap in the reporting can bring an avalanche of criticism.
In a recent Forbes article, Hunt mentioned about problems she faced while keeping her personal opinions away from the reporting. Often times things are so personal that it is difficult to be objective and yet, as a journalist, you have to be; you have to keep your opinions and report without any bias.
One recent example would be when Kasie praised a Republican party candidate for being a war veteran and said that the Senate would be better with more vets like him. But in the public that came out as an endorsement of a political candidate, and as an impartial journalist that was the worst thing to do. Kasie later apologised saying that was not her intention.
