Journalism 101

Freedom of the press
depends on integrity
eschew opinion.

Today’s theme is an image of a pen writing. The thought that came to me was the difficulty we have in obtaining  objective information, not tainted by opinion. I am not a journalist, but as I understand it, part of the code of ethics in journalism calls for factual reporting.

    Is there any untainted material anywhere? I am nervous about the fact that when I write a story on a blog and publish it, I can appear on google as though I am an expert. Yikes…we all have responsibility.

  7. In a capitalist world we can’t ever find untainted news in some way. That is an idealist notion in this day and age. Nice work!
