Honesty with Journalism
Journalism is based on six principles, but I believe Honesty, is what creates the foundation for the other five. To be honest in journalism is to report the truth, without truth journalism is nothing. The world would be lost in colossal storm of rumors and gossip, people wouldn't know what to believe. Through honesty is how a journalist is able to build a reputation, by writing direct quotes instead of those out of context, people will be more willing for an interview or to come back for another. Journalism is a form of communication, a way for the people to be informed, so what would be the purpose if we simply spewed garbage in our journalistic writing?
