'As we move to the debates, let’s remember that to expose charlatans is not partisanship, but simply good journalism. If Trump seems to be a Teflon candidate, to whom almost nothing sticks, we must still do our jobs... What I suggest isn’t the sharp departure from journalistic custom that some accuse me of. In the early 1950s, journalists were also faced with how to cover a manipulative demagogue — Senator Joe McCarthy — and traditional evenhandedness wasn’t serving the public interest. We honor Edward R. Murrow for breaking with journalistic convention and standing up to McCarthy, saying: “This is no time for men who oppose Senator McCarthy’s methods to keep silent.” Our job is not stenography, but truth-telling.'
