On transparency, objectivity and false balance

"If 'impartiality' means an even split between opposing beliefs in every article, the concept deserves to be tossed out. Get at the truth, above all. But getting at the truth can require setting aside personal views to evaluate evidence fairly. If that’s impartiality, it remains not only worthwhile but crucially necessary."-NYT Public Editor Margaret Sullivan

I wonder if, in the years ahead, more editors and reporters will try approaching #journalism using something akin to the scientific method, sharing their underlying hypothesis, method, data, results & conclusion.
