Wednesday (3/8/17) Journalism Ethics

Bell Work:

Have you ever heard something about yourself that wasn’t true? How did you respond to hearing this? Have you ever said something about someone else that wasn’t true? Be honest, and if so why did you say it? If you haven’t what keeps you from making something up about someone? Do you believe that the media is typically honest? Why or why not; give examples.


Class Work:

Discuss the five principles of journalism.

1) Truth and Accuracy

2) Independence

3) Fairness and Impartiality

4) Humanity

5) Accountability
