Media Ethics: Into the pot, already boiling...

Media Ethics: Into the pot, already boiling...
okay lets start out the laundry list.
first there is Megan looking through files and printing a story that she didn't get both sides to. I think it's interesting that they would print someting that is to the "best of there knowlege" and not really researched.
when Megan goes out to lunch with Michel and gets bugged so he dosn't know that he is being put on "record".
ofcourse abortion is a big ethical to do and if Megan should have written about it or not in the news paper. It seems like they should have had some privacy issues there.
I liked the comment from the Political figure when he asked were you trying to buy me and michal replys I don't know are you for sale. =)
and just an interesting part when Michal and Meg. are talking to each other and he asks her if he is talking to her or the reporter. and she says the truth is truth in the world or reporting.
over all everything is so slippery in this movie which is probably why you made us watch it. It's interesting to see just how far you can go printing what ever you want.

Privacy (and the invasion of) is a major ethical -- and legal -- issue for mass media. But in this case, where a source volunteers her private information to a reporter in order to provide an alibi for her friend, where should the reporter's allegiance lie?
