Terms in this set (10)
Journalism's first obligation. Practical, not absolute. Democracy depends on it.
To all citizens, not just the wealthy or literate. Credibility is the foundation of success.
The essential discipline of journalism . Methods are objective. Multiple witnesses/sources.
Avoid devotion to a certain group or outcome. Political partnership, overt religious affiliation, avoid enmity as well.
Keeping an eye on people; politicians, corporations, social institutions.
Journalists must provide a place for public feedback and discussion about news and the issues of the day. Encourage opposition and criticism.
Make the important interesting, significant stories must be made interesting and relevant to the public. Balance what audience wants with what it needs.
Keep the news comprehensive and proportional. Respect diversity, include everyone, don't blow thing up or minimize them.
Room for Dissent
Journalists must be allowed to exercise their personal conscience. Criticize each other, speak their minds.
Not everyone can be a journalist these days. No more information monopoly, citizen journalists have obligations, too. Help make sense of the flood of duty, sort truth from rumor and propaganda.
