I decided I had something further to say on the subject after reading the entry by Bittymiah. A journalist should report THE TRUTH. ALWAYS. And as much as is morally reasonable. For those of you who have taken Media Smarts, you know that the picture presented by the media is generally that we live in a world where white men rule, white women are moms or objects, adolescence apparently begins around the age of 10, and minorities are those who most often commit crimes.
What a sad world, and it's been created by people that I'll be working with in 10 years. Things should be presented accurately, untainted, and objectively. A journalist always owes loyalty to that nagging voice of truth. A journalist should always answer.
