The most important thing I’ve learned in Media Lab, is the role of a Journalist is a heavy burden to bear. While reading the Haimen articles, I’ve determined journalists will always be criticized, but what makes a good journalist is the ability to ignore society and simply report the news. I can practice this by becoming more daring and challenging with my stories.
A concept I would like to see a future class of Media Lab cover is a class solely on the ethics of a journalist. Most controversies occur because the flirtation journalists have with the ethical boundaries. I feel like these tough decisions need to be thoroughly examined in order to get a future journalist more comfortable with their future line of work.
