I believe…now

“I believe that journalists have the power to sway people’s opinions and this should not be taken lightly.”

 

After learning more about the art of journalism this semester, this statement has a new meaning to me. Yes, I still believe journalists have the power to sway people’s opinions. But how much should they really use that power? A good journalist tries to be unbiased and includes all perspectives in an article. So it seems to me that experts should not try to sway people’s opinions about a topic, but rather they should present all relevant information to help readers form educated opinions. They should not abuse this power to express their own opinions. They should use it to give a voice to all sides.
