Media Ethics

BY JP Michelsen

There are a select few in the media industry, if any, who are truly ethical. I can speak only of what I know of how the media functions in the United States, but here everything is done with money. When money is involved in any form (i.e. jobs, promotions, bonuses, literal currency) whoever has the money holds power over the paid individual. Everyone has their own agenda, even things like social media, and usually that agenda is to have a successful business. To do this they need to make money. Unfortunately when the only real incentive is money, ethics seem to go right out the window. A phrase that may capture the essence of my point would be, “if you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying.”
