Trolling headline, or opinion?
|Ken Davis: kendavis.com/commentary/internet-trolls/|
As journalists our #1 concern should remaining transparent and to not deceive our readers. Trolling is deceiving and does not serve as a strong base to build readership. For my reputation's sake I would rather have less "clicks" and a lower readership than to troll my readers with crumby trolling or hypocritical articles like Prince. Researched, factual, and challenging opinion pieces are of more value than trolling articles. With the growth of technology and popularity of article sharing online grows it is important to remember to still remain ethical and adapt to technological changes.
