When the media tries too hard to 'appeal to both sides', integrity is lost
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)

Trump-era media really is something else. Otherwise smart and interesting publications are working so hard to appeal to both sides that theyve completely abandoned their integrity in the process. Take the Atlantic, who announced a new roster of high-profile columnists this week, including Kevin D Williamson a writer who compared a nine-year-old black child to a primate, and who argued that women that have abortions along with their doctors and nurses should be executed by hanging. When I asked the Atlantic for comment, a spokesperson responded that the magazine has a large number of contributors who represent a broad spectrum of views. She wrote that while diverse viewpoints are core to the magazines mission, they have strict standards for how these viewpoints are expressed in our pages. In other words, the Atlantic doesnt mind employing a marquee columnist who thinks women should be hanged for having abortions so long as he doesnt say as much in the magazine. But believing America should execute women in genocidal numbers (one in four women in this country will have an abortion) is not a diverse viewpoint and the fact that one of the nations leading political magazines could defend it as such indicates a serious moral crisis in mainstream media.
