Haley Stevens Roop Raj political commercial

Post by Tman » Fri Sep 18, 2020 8:37 pm

I was so surprised to see Haley Stevens political ad commercial that included Roop Raj stating positive comments about her . Is this not a conflict of intrest for Roop to stay unbiased ? I cant believe also that Fox 2 would ok this for the same reason . Help me out hear gang . I find this very confusing .

I believe its just a quick clip from a previous story. That said, its pretty obvious where Roop's favor lies.

Local TV literally plays Biden ads as 'news' and has the anchors sit stunned by his majesty, then they start smearing Trump with obviously spun or totally faked news.

This is simply the next step.

I, too, saw the ad in question and was surprised to see footage of Roop Raj on camera. It wasn't just a few second snippet, either.

I have no idea if Raj or WJBK were given advance notice that such footage would be used, but the Stevens campaign certainly seems to be attempting to create the impression that Raj endorses her policy positions and candidacy. I could understand using some of the audio from his report, but to actually show him on screen for that length of time struck me as unusual if not entirely inappropriate.

I do believe she will win reelection; the results will likely be similar to 2018.

The next step of what exactly?

Not all ideas are created equal nor should they be treated equal. And then when somebody lies endlessly they are gonna start to lose credibility... The Trump folks dig their own graves on this stuff...

I agree, it gives the impression that an "unbiased" journalist is making a political endorsement.

It will be interesting to see if that ad continues to run. Has it aired on Fox 2? I think I was watching WXYZ when I saw it.

Roop has worked hard to make himself one of the best politically connected reporters in the market. He seems to have a real good relationship with the Trump campaign.

Roop is a primadonna hack who uses his nationality to be a victim.
