In Filkas chapter 12 and 13 he talks about the different rights you have and should follow and also different ethic approaches.
It’s important to know what ethics you should follow and also why they matter. The Golden Mean is very helpful to know because it helps journalists find a happy medium with whoever they’re interviewing. Finding a balance between people is a good approach to writings. Ignorance is a risky area for journalists. Whether or not to release a story for someone being in jail as a star player somewhere, is a tough call to make. Being honest in your stories is very helpful and beneficial. Although we have freedom of speech, we as journalists can’t stray too far from the truth due to the backlash you or your company may get for publishing a certain story.
Filak tells us many do’s and don’ts in these two chapters and i do find them both very helpful.
