Week 10, Blog 9: Media Ethics
By Haley Cardamon
In todays media, such as magazines and online entertainment sites, have very low morals and will say anything about anyone just to have the best story out at the time.
Media outlets like People Magazine and TMZ.com always have false and dramatized information about celebrities. They make up or twist the truth in order to create entertainment for the people. I think the worst part about this, besides lying about a persons life, is that many people have low media literacy and actually believe the nonsense they see in magazines or on TMZ.
Even news outlets report biased information. We saw during the presidential election how differently on news channel would report on the same topic.
We all must be careful what we read nowadays.
