Final Reading Response

Chapter 12 and 13 were focused around laws and ethics in writing. Chapter 12 was pretty east to understand and for me it wasn’t much new information. It did make me understand that I need to, as a reporter, stay up to date on Media Law. It also emphasized the importance on following proper protocol when you use someone else’s information.

Also as a reporter your job is to truthfully convey a message and in order to do that you have to have good morale and ethics. By not being an ethical reporter your credibility will fall and you will quickly become a “bad” reporter. Also Filack says to find good ethics you believe in and not ethics fake the concept.
