Ethical Dilemmas - Shaquille
In my opinion, staying away from offending and distasteful content is the most important point. While some of the information may be true, it is very important to phrase it in a way whereby it does not sound as hurtful or offensive. The reason behind this is that a journalist would not want to spark up a fight, riot, or risked getting fired from the firm just because of a short statement. For example, racist remarks will definitely anger the audience that is associated with it. This will then result in complaints, etc as mentioned before. As a result, companies may lose their audience, or even their journalists due to a mere statement. Therefore, I think that it is important to stay away from offending and distasteful content.
