Ethics Exercise #1

My ethical obligation would be to report my findings without bias and emotional intrusion. So definitely it would not be my job to help the homeless girls by giving them money, because that would just be a short term solution, next time I show up they would beg me again showing that the problem was not solved as they say , “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”

I think I would raise awareness on what the girls are going through and what i believe are the solutions to their problems, of course I would write persuasively (am not sure if this is being biased) so that the reader would feel that they can do something about the girls situation and come to their rescue.

I agree with you Tina. A

I agree with you Tina. A persuasive article can open the hearts, minds and pockets of readers to act on the issues e.g. homeless girls. The role of media is to inform and educate the public and hope that policy makers, service providers, concerned citizens will take heed.

Cheers.
