    At the Walter Cronkite School ethics is an important topic that is taught and taken very seriously. This Must See Monday covered one particular aspect of ethics, which was to minimize harm. The overall question of debate was how to report the truth fully and accurately without causing more conflicts. I thought it was very appropriate to have both Victor Merina and Ina Jaffe come in and share their experiences as reporters so that current and future journalist could have the chance to hear how they have managed to make ethical judgments and honor those judgments even at the most difficult times. From Victor Merina, who worked as a Senior Correspondent and Special Projects Editor during the Los Angeles Riots, I learned that we have to be as unobtrusive and as humane as possible. From Ina Jaffe, a Desk Correspondent for NPR West who covered the Stockton Shootings, I learned that we should demonstrate respect in times of suffering. The main thing they were trying to convey was that taking a human approach to situations that we have the pleasure of covering or writing an article about does not take away our credentials as journalist, that we are obligated to do this because we can not get the story if we do not first choose to act in this way.

    he film, The Pelican Brief, is a very intriguing story that involves a investigative journalist and his journey to unveiling a government cover-up. Greg Grantham, played by Denzel Washington, is a dedicated journalism who will do just what it takes to reveal the story. Even though he goes to great extents to find his information, he remains an ethical journalist. He maintains his objectiveness and accountability by thoroughly investigating and not jumping to conclusions Along his pursuit, he finds a highly sought after college student who might have just the information he needs to provide an accurate story. His only hope is to gain information from her, but he also has to keep her safe at the same time so that she does not get killed. Although this movie was not the most influential for journalists, it was very entertaining. The action and suspense reel in the audience, while also showing a investigative journalists work.

    Although the sci-fi genre has long remained in the form of fiction, it has recently taken a turn to being a predictor of the future. As presented by Eric Newton at this week’s Must See Monday, technology has risen exponentially over the last half of the century. This increase in technological advancement has led to outcomes that, as Newton pointed out, have drawn parallels to the fictitious inventions found in sci-fi films and writings. Though Newton’s explanations seemed outlandish at first, they became logical as he efficiently pointed out and explained the similarities found between science fiction and reality. While I am still unsure as to whether or not humanity will ever reach the period of new enlightenment, or Omni Media, I do agree with Newton on the terms that today’s youth will be the leaders of not only journalism but also society. Even though this cyclical nature of society has always been in place, today’s technology has put the field of journalism in a unique and opportunistic position for younger generations to redefine the ideals of journalism. Taking the advice of Newton, as leaders of tomorrow’s news, today’s journalists need to start thinking outside the box and work with traditionalists to efficiently update journalism and put it in a position for a successful future.

    Eric Newton, the senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, spoke in the Walter Cronkite School’s first amendment forum Monday night on the future and history of news. Newton emphasized in the lecture, what 1676 tells us about 2110, that the technology we are using today seemed crazy at one point but many of the inventions we now use such as Skype, cell phones, and the iPad were seen in movies years ago. He said that every American generation grows up with a different form of media starting in 1767. In 1767 it began with pamphlets and from there media progressed to newspapers, then to daily newspapers because of the printing press, then the telegraph and so on. He also said that history shows every 80 years there is a tragedy or great awakening, for example the civil war was 80 years before WWII and we will be another time of tragedy and experience World War 3.0. He also said that there are already “cyber armies.” According to Newton, media is becoming more personal, portable, and participatory. He also said that the journalism and mass communication field is changing drastically and that print journalism will die. He predicted that in the future there will be intelligent media, bio media (which will include augmented reality), machine awareness, hyper media where data will be imported to our brains, and also Omni media where information will be exported from our brains in the form of things such as telepathy. At the conclusion of these changes he predicted there will be a World War 4.0, he said this is a war in which humans will be fighting against non-humans. At the end of this lecture he said that there are multiple reasons why this wouldn’t happen but reminded the audience that no matter how crazy it seems it is still an option.

    This Must See Monday was one of the most insightful productions that has been put on in the Cronkite building and helped me to decide how I should handle difficult situations while out on the job. Victor Merina from Reznet and Ina Jaffe from NPR West in L.A. gave us some their experiences and allowed us to make our own ethical decisions on the situations.Jaffe let us in on one of her traumatic stories that she had to cover of a school shooting. After a school shooting in California, which killed some students at the school, Jaffe was sent to cover the story as the school was re-opening the day after the shooting. She watched as bullet holes were patched up in the walls of the school and was told by her editor to not speak to students of the tragedy. Jaffe told all of us in the room “when you walk into these situations, don’t make it worse.”Merina was assigned to cover the profiles of 54 people who were killed during the L.A. Riots after the Rodney King verdict. He told us of the funerals he attended and how to gain access into the lives of the families without offending them. One of the funerals he went to was an Asian family’s Buddhist ceremony for their recently deceased son. Merina said it was a very unique experience and he made it very comfortable for the family and didn’t make it feel like an intrusion into their private lives.This was a very important Must See Monday to attend and it gave me a lot of pointers that I will keep with me forever on how to handle these sorts of ethical decisions. I also learned that I should not become overly absorbed in these types of stories that I may do in the future.

    We all know it, and if we don’t, well we probably shouldn’t be going into journalism. Ethics are the basis and core of journalism. Without it we as a publication, or any other news agency, are not a credible source of information. The big question is, how are ethics defined? Or, how are they implemented in a story? Do they change depending on the situation? Or are there concrete rules to follow? “Communities in Crisis: Ethical Considerations for Journalists,” discussed these very questions with real life examples.Victor Merina, senior correspondent and special projects editor, and Ina Jaffe, national desk correspondent for NPR West spoke to the First Amendment Forum about their work in covering special cases. Their experience included, but was obviously not limited to, Hurricane Katrina and the recent shooting in Tucson. Their stories are certainly inspiring and both showed caution in dealing with such unfortunate events. Throughout Merina and Jaffe’s presentation the thing that struck me the most was when Jaffe said, “you have to have respect for suffering.” It really made sense of how we should put ourselves in the victims’ shoes and have respect for what they are going through. I also found it interesting how she said to try not to get too emotional while writing the package. She even went on to say how after a piece was done she might start to cry because of all the hurt and emotion that was going around her. It makes sense to me why as journalists we do not want to place ourselves in the stories, but at the end of the day we realize that real people are getting hurt and affected by such tragic events, and it is our job to help shed light on the topic!
