Ethical Dilemmas - Michael Chun
I feel that being biased is the most important dilemma that journalist face. Everyone is biased by nature, and often we do not realise it. If the journalist feels biased towards one side, he would interview that side more and might even tweak his report to support that one side. This will only show the reader one side of the story, making it unfair for the other party. As a journalist, it is important for them to put their opinions aside and give every party an equal chance to speak, giving the audience a wider perspective of the whole story.
