Journalists have values?
I enjoy the description of a journalist in the passage titled "The Language of Journalism." There are very few times in which I have actually heard a positive reference to a journalist. Now, I have been informed that they have their own language as well. Journalism is not my major, but I find it interesting that there is a set of rules for being a journalist. After reading these rules, I absolutely agree that this is how it should be, but is this how it always is. "The language of journalism should be concrete and specific," is this true of all major news stories. Recently the class just discussed how news stories were not always trustworthy. "The language of journalism is active," news is always supposed to be up to date, but I have seen "Breaking News," that happened hours before the show was aired. These are just a few examples of how journalism may imply that it has a proper "language," but it does not always follow it.
