Question and answer
Investigate and explain three roles and three responsobilities of the media
There are actually 4 universal role of the media and these are as follows : 1. Inform - give the public the best available information that is presented by officials . 2. [ [ Investigate - don't take what officials say at face value, but realize that eyewitness accounts - for example - should pass some type of litmus test and not just be tossed out in an attempt to scoop the competition. 3. Respect - in case of deaths/ongoing crisis, that the producer/editor thinks, "what if I was a family member relying on my medium for information," error on the side of caution. 4. Follow-Up - just because
a new cycle ends doesn't mean the story goes away....the biggest tragedy is to allow time and ratings to dictate keeping a reporter in an investigative mode....it may not mean there is info that will be aired/published, but bring conclusion to the story though it may mean actually paying people to dig and simply come up with "file" material. ] ]
