Question and answer
Do the information media have social responsibility? If yes, in what ways? If no, why not?
Information media has social responsibility in several ways. Society relies on media to learn about what is happening in the world. [ [ It is important for people to understand what news affects them personally and what news is relevant to their career, family, and future. It is common for people to make life changing decisions based on news, such as financial decisions, changes in the economy,
and local events. This places a heavy responsibility on the media. It is an American tradition in journalism to report facts first, validate sources, and apply ethical standards. Journalists have the first amendment right to report all information; however, what is legal is not always ethical. An example of this would be a juvenile’s name or name of a rape victim. The journalist can legally make names public, but it is not ethical is some situations. The media is left to implement these ethical standards on their own giving them social responsibility. ] ]
