ABSTRACT
This article presents a discussion of the concept of journalistic objectivity, and whether a journalist's personal identity does not always get in the way of completely unbiased reporting. The author writes from his own experience publishing "Absolute Convictions," a book about the abortion debate. He then discusses the book "Prisoners: A Muslim & A Jew Across the Middle East Divide" by Jeffrey Goldberg, about Goldberg's experiences as an Israeli soldier in charge of Palestinian prisoners. "The Yellow Wind," by David Grossman, about life in the occupied territories, is also discussed.
