They don’t seem to understand that journalism means being:
- Having integrity
To make it worse, some are in bed with scumbags and political parties, and are into promotional activities for third rate people, giving them all sorts of awards.
When pointed out, they are unable to understand what is being pointed out and why. This shouldn’t be surprising because of their lack of training as journalists and knowledge and understanding of ethics.
My comments are not about every journalist because there are many great ones, but they are definitely about many (substandard ones) who are around us and with whom we deal with on a daily basis. I am sure you will get a gist.
I hope they will take these comments as healthy criticism and as a plea to reflect on whether they are fulfilling the parameters of ethical journalism, and to make amends, if they are not.
