Documented Journalist: Major Garrett of Fox News

In an effort to expose those working in the field without documentation, I will identify whether or not a journalist holds a degree in journalism or communications.

Why is this important?

Documented journalists have been taught in college to not only cover the who, what, where, when, why, and how of news, but they have also learned the reason why the Framers of the Constitution protected the press from the government in the First Amendment, and the role the press plays as the Fourth Estate by providing final checks and balances over the political process in the United States. Journalist malpractice can thus be exposed through training or lack thereof.

Simply put, it is not the job of the press to hold one political party more accountable than another. It is the job of the press to objectively report the truth.
Major Garrett is the senior White House correspondent for the Fox News Channel.

Garrett earned a Bachelor's in Journalism and Political Science from the University of Missouri in 1984. Major Garrett is a fully documented journalist.
