The topic for this last blog is back to the one that I wrote for this class at the beginning of this semester—ethics of journalism.
Coincidentally, I was showed a video about Chinese people blaming the western media for not reporting truths in my history class today. As a Chinese who is studying journalism in the U.S., the video actually makes me feel that I'm right in the middle.
Besides transparency, there are still numerous difficulties for news workers to overcome on the way to real journalism. The work we are doing is like a war, and the enemies we fight against are not only the government or greater powers but also ourselves.
In my opinion, the most important thing for a journalist to remember and to achieve is to always seek and report the truth to serve the public through transparency. Like this article says, "transparency is the answer to bad government and wrongdoing by corporations and news media...Let the 'sunshine' of transparency enter the public domain and watch these evil forces retreat."
