Hello everybody, this is Ryan here, and this is another 03 podcast.
For today, I will be talking about some dilemmas that journalists face. There are seven main ones, which are, conflict of interest,, plagiarism, having anonymous sources, offending content, invading privacy, being bias, and being accurate.
I think that being Bias would be the the most important ethical dilemma. Reporters will tend to be bias towards one side whenever they publish emotional news. Influence by the government will also affect Bias. By doing this, journalists are limiting the viewers of their opinion and not being fair and impartial to the people involved in the news. Journalist should put aside their emotions and be as truthful as possible.
The second most important one is commitment to accuracy. Journalists have to be accurate in their work so as to make sure that the audience does not get false information, which could be harmful to the company of the journalist, and the journalists reputation.
