Ethics and journalism

I'm not sure how many people really believe what is conveyed by the media. The more and more first hand stories we hear from the concerned people directly and compare that with the media reports, we tend to lose faith.

Another aspect of losing faith in media is when they report events just to grab attention without any sort of humanity behind it. Recently I read in a tamil weekly magazine about an old actress who is penny less and lives a solitary life. Against her wish, the journalists have taken her photos and exposed her miserable situation. How selfishly the media humiliates people for their gain!
