Q&A with Jason Salzman: Where activism meets journalism
Author: Dan Njegomir - January 29, 2018 - Updated: January 31, 2018
Let conservatives go ahead and wave off his brand of journalism as slanted and partisan if they so choose; Jason Salzman readily owns up to his leftward leanings — but he'll tell you facts are facts. The onetime Rocky Mountain News media critic turned progressive blogger, who gamely takes on Colorado's right-of-center political pantheon, says his bias doesn't stand in the way of his journalistic standards. Which is why, as he notes in today's Q&A, he goes after pols, typically on the right, when he feels they're trading in fake news. It's also why he calls out newsfolk (I've been among them) if he thinks they fall short of their mark.
