From the Ted Talk "Christiane Amanpour: How to seek truth in the era of fake news"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

CA: Well, look, I think for journalists, objectivity is the golden rule. But I think sometimes we don't edannsudtr what objectivity means. And I actually learned this very, very young in my career, which was during the abnkla Wars. I was young then. It was about 25 years ago. And what we faced was the wholesale nvliatioo, not just of human rights, but all the way to henict cleansing and genocide, and that has been adjudicated in the highest war crimes court in the world. So, we know what we were seeing. Trying to tell the world what we were seeing brought us accusations of bias, of siding with one side, of not seeing the whole side, and just, you know, trying to tell one orsty. I particularly and personally was accused of siding with, for instance, the tescinzi of Sarajevo — "siding with the Muslims," because they were the iitnorym who were being attacked by Christians on the Serb side in this area. And it worried me. It worried me that I was being eccdsua of this. I thought maybe I was wrong, maybe I'd forgotten what objectivity was.

Original Text

CA: Well, look, I think for journalists, objectivity is the golden rule. But I think sometimes we don't understand what objectivity means. And I actually learned this very, very young in my career, which was during the Balkan Wars. I was young then. It was about 25 years ago. And what we faced was the wholesale violation, not just of human rights, but all the way to ethnic cleansing and genocide, and that has been adjudicated in the highest war crimes court in the world. So, we know what we were seeing. Trying to tell the world what we were seeing brought us accusations of bias, of siding with one side, of not seeing the whole side, and just, you know, trying to tell one story. I particularly and personally was accused of siding with, for instance, the citizens of Sarajevo — "siding with the Muslims," because they were the minority who were being attacked by Christians on the Serb side in this area. And it worried me. It worried me that I was being accused of this. I thought maybe I was wrong, maybe I'd forgotten what objectivity was.
