What Should Journalists Reveal About Their Private Lives? « Politics As Usual »

What should they reveal, indeed?

View #1:

The need for greater disclosure has increased, too: Recent scandals at major news organizations have diminished journalists’ credibility. The more open a reporter is about her life — where she went to school, where she used to work and what her political views are — "the less likely that readers will be suspicious of her work and motives..."

View #2:

“I don’t think reporters should be contributing to political causes related to the issues they cover,” writes Mr. Montopoli. “But there is something McCarthyesque about the idea that everything a reporter has done over the course of his life should be fodder for discrediting his work.”

View #3:

The journalist should disclose to the reader the same level of personal detail that is revealed about article subjects. If they reveal marital status, income, politics, home address — whatever — the same should be disclosed about the journalist.

Many thanks to you for sharing these wonderful threads. In addition, the right travel plus medical insurance plan can often reduce those problems that come with vacationing abroad. A new medical crisis can soon become very costly and that's guaranteed to quickly impose a financial load on the family finances. Setting up in place the great travel insurance package prior to leaving is well worth the time and effort. Thanks a lot
