Ethical Dilemmas - Ikmal
I think that staying away from Offending or Distasteful Content is the most important ethical dilemma that journalists face. This is because even though you might offend someone while writing your material, is should not also offend other people so that the community would not have the wrong views of a certain gender, religion, nationality etc. It could cause riots and social unrest if the statements in the published item is phrased offensively. The journalist could also lose his/her job and the publisher of the article would be treated badly by their audience if there are offensive remarks in the published item.
