Hello, i am Jason Low from S2-05 and today i will be talking about three ethical dilemmas that journalists would face.
Firstly, i would to say that this is purely my opinion and it might be wrong.
The three ethical dilemmas that i will be talking about today is Invasion of privacy, Conflict of interest and Bias.
of privacy is where a journalist would say peep through the windows of a
celebrity's house just to take a few shots of the person. On the other
hand, if a celebrity went to the beach and was showing more skin than
usual, that isn't an invasion of privacy as the beach is a public place
where anyone can go. The celebrity may request that the photos be
deleted as it does not show the person in a good manner, but the option
of deleting the photos would be left up to the journalist.
of interest is when a journalist would change details about the story
without affecting the main point of it. An example would be if a
journalist was asked to cover a story about a certain company in the the
stock market that was recently losing money, and that reporter is
heavily invested in a the company’s stock, it might change how he/she
writes about the company.
Lastly bias, one example
would be in the case where a journalist was asked to cover a story about
two different companies but he/she might favorite one more than the
other, this would affect the story. Thank you!
