Should Reporters Challenge Or Ignore Election Disbelievers?

Back in December, Matt Negrin, a former journalist and now producer at Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” wrote a column for The Washington Post saying that TV journalists who invite Republicans on the air should begin by asking if they believed Biden won the election. If they don’t say yes, the interview should end. Many in the news business believe that stance goes too far, that a journalist’s role is to question ideas and point out inaccuracies or outright fictions, not to pretend they don’t exist. Two Sunday morning hosts, Jake Tapper and Chris Wallace, recently revealed themselves as polar opposites on the point.
