An equally dissatisfying remark for anyone in the journalism profession to hear is that, “A recent Ipsos study found that only 10% of those surveyed believe the news industry 'acts with integrity (Los Angeles Times, 2015).”
There is little doubt that the various technological advances that have taken place throughout the twentieth century have been nothing short of revolutionary for the journalism industry. In spite of these advances though, a career as a journalist is not the same “highly coveted dream job” it used to be in the early 1900s. The reason is because people’s perception of the profession and those who practice it is largely negative. Journalists are not seen in a positive light typically. The reason is because the people are not fond of journalist’s repeated pushing the limits with regard to the core values of the profession. Journalists are failing to realize that just because the traditional medium has changed from print to digital that does not mean that we abandon the principals at which the profession was built on. Regardless of the medium, journalism must be conducted in accordance with the core values, anything less is not true journalism.
