Filak talks about how the law is always changing and that reports should always be up to speed about what is going on. He also explains to always be careful what you publish. I’ve seen reports that have gotten a lot of hate just because of the title. Always be careful what you write.
Filak talks about how ethics is very important to journalist. People might not pay attention to your write ups if you aren’t using ethics. You want people to believe in your work so always use ethics that back your work up.
