In Chapters 12 and 13, Filak discusses laws and ethics. Chapter 12 talks about how the law is constantly changing and that good reporters should always keep their heads up on what is going on in the field of media law. Filak also relays the importance of being careful no matter what your publishing, wether it be a short tweet or a published article. Just use caution.
When it comes to ethics, Filak says it is important to understand ethics and know that they are very important for reporters and journalists. If you ignore ethics then you put your credibility at risk and your readers might stop paying attention to your work. He also talks about how important it is to adapt your ethics and change the way you work. It is important to use ethical standards that you can support and actually hold onto than it is to “fake” the concept of good ethics.
