responsible journalism

|

i wanted to be a reporter. i want to take MassCom for me to enter the journalism field. parang there is something to it na masaya. of course aside sa fact na you will always be updated on what is happening on the country.

while reading some national news and showbiz news, i came accross on one article. its all about the resignation of Joey de Leon on Manila Bulletin. if i may quote ung content ng article:

gusto daw ni joey de leon na maging miserable ung buhay ng editor na nagsulat na flop ang show ng Eat Bulaga sa LA. and based dun sa nagsulat ng article, his/her side is dun sa entertainment editor. na puede naman daw na patawarin na lang ni joey ung editor, na patawarin na lang since matanda na rin naman si joey and sana maintindihan nya dahil senior na naman cya sa showbiz industry.. mga katwiran na baluktot at hindi tama.. puedeng sa tingin nya ay tama dahil kaibigan nya iyong editor..



okay. para sa akin this is my point on the issue. He is the editor of the said newspaper hence he should be responsible for all the news that came out on the newspaper under him. And the article the he - himself - wrote should practice responsible journalism.

Point by point:
1. The editor said na flop daw iyong show - okay.. Nandun ba cya sa mismong show? Wala. Responsible Journalism is abused.

2. Joey de Leon should forgive the editor - Not Okay. Everytime na my ganito ba papatawarin na lang lagi? Because senior ka pagbibigyan mo na lang iyong nagkasala? Tell me. Objective pa ba ito?

3. The editor should be ashamed of himself - for him to write article that is not first hand information and for even him not present in the show itself, nakakahiya. You are an editor. You should know what a responsible journalism is.

Journalism is about telling the people whats the truth. What is really happening either good or bad. The people should know. We dont need to protect anything or anyone just by destroying other.

Editor ka. Ibig sabihin narating mo yang posisyon na iyan dahil my sapat kang kaalaman sa larangang pinili mo. Ngayon, ng dahil sa isang artikulo na sinulat mo na wala ka mismo sa lugar at mali mali pa ang sinulat mo, hindi ba dapat mahiya ka na sa sarili mo?

At sa kaibigang writer ng editor na ito - do you think objective pa rin ba ung ginawa mong article? pinalabas mong masama ung isang tao para maiangat sa sarili nyang kasalanan ung editor. Sino ba ang nagsimula? Sino ba ang nagsulat ng hindi tama? Sino ngayon ang my ebidensya? Sino ang nagmukhang tama?

Sa pagsusulat hindi dapat puro puso ang ginagamit. Oo. hanapbuhay ang pagsusulat. pero we should think also that we need to practice iyong RESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM.

Totoo. Tama. Sakto. Walang labis. Walang kulang. Lahat ay base sa totoong inpormasyon lamang.

mukhang kapuso ka david. heheh seriously, i agree with what you said about responsible journalism. kaya kung minsan, hindi ako nagtataka na merong mga journalists/commentators/writers na pinapatay or kidnapped for ransom. and malay natin, kapamilya yung editor na yun :) you know how it is with the network war.
