That's a weird thing to say. Why should a podcast have an obligation to be fair to people who think any particular thing?
Because the podcast claimed to be balanced and to be a fact finding exercise. When you deliberately skew how certain people are going to be perceived, that strikes me as particularly unfair. Whether it's writing off things Hae wrote in her diary as her being melodramatic, or seeming to avoid asking Adnan any tough questions at all, the correct journalistic approach IMO would be to not leave some many misimpressions.
