On May 2, Tucker Carlson cited a Politico study that stated only five percent of reporters on the White House press corps are registered Republicans. It was suggested that negative news coverage of Trump by these reporters is an agenda, based on political differences.
Carlson then asked his guests if they thought White House coverage would change if BYU journalism graduates were hired onto the press corp.
Here, BYU journalism students, a few of whom are now graduated, briefly shared their reasons for studying journalism.
Reasons range from telling stories to giving a voice to the people and reporting the truth. All of the students expressed a desire to have a positive impact.
