Three of Seven Dilemmas Journalists face
Invasion of Privacy
The journalist is going to write an article on a famous singer. In order to make it more interesting, the journalist wants to get more information about the singer. The journalist than follows the singer around just to pry into the singer's private life.
Conflict of Interest
The journalist is going to interview a singer who is charged with drink driving. The journalist herself is a big fan of a singer and when she reports about the singer, she writes about the singer in such a way that the singer has no fault.
The journalist is tasked to write about a famous singer. The journalist searches about the famous singer online and uses somebody else's information about the singer. The journalist does not credit the person who created the post. This is called Plagiarism.
