Objectivity vs Subjectivity: Honesty is the best policy

Objectivity is a theory and is not achievable in reality. There is too much information on any given event to include everything; the writer must make a choice. Every story told comes from a perspective, from the facts that the teller chooses to include or not include and the framing of the language. Everything you read is subjective purely because a person writes it.

Objective. (of a person or their judgement) not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts.

Oxford Languages

Subjective. based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions.

I believe there are two principles to good journalism:

  1. It is honest about its perspective 
  2. It is fair to the other sides of the argument

Honest. free of deceit; truthful and sincere.

Oxford languages

Fair. treating people equally without favouritism or discrimination.

Oxford Languages

Instead of aiming for objectivity in your writing, be honest about your opinions and beliefs that have led you to frame the piece in the way you have and try to empathise with the views of others that see it differently. The world will be a better place if we all have a little more integrity and compassion.
