    impersonal techniques

    Hi,

    I am not sure about the meaning of the following sentence. Could anyone do me a favor?

    More reporter began to specialize in relation to distinct news topics (labour, science, agriculture, and so forth) using 'impersonal', fact-centered techniques of observation.


    Thanks a lot.

    I think what is meant by impersonal there is lacking bias. Or perhaps what is intended is objective.

    Re: impersonal techniques

    I'd say it was a synonym of objective here, too. :D
