RR 9

In these chapters we get into what the first amendment really means to us as journalist. we are protected by freedom of speech and freedom of the press but that freedom does have limits. We can publish any story of fact of truth but people still have a right to sue or try to bring the story down if it hurts government process or is slander. In these cases the right of freedom of speech doesn’t stand up.

He uses ethics to view how we should use our journalistic abilities. He uses the phrase “just because we can doesn’t mean we should.” a example of this in journalism would be having details of a CEO’s affair. Just because we can make a story doesn’t mean we should be the ones to publish it and expose them.
