What’s your definition of objectivity? Why be objective? How do you do it?
In the articles we read for class, my interpretation of objectivity is defined as covering news without conveying my own thoughts and feelings. Objectivity is used to prevent bias opinions in writing. To be objective, you must be fair. Fairness means covering both sides of a story, regardless of your opinion.
According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of obsolete is something that is no longer used because something else exists. I do believe with the changing times, journalism is being transformed. However, as stated in Matthew Ingram’s post, news comes in different forms. Myself, I read the Sioux City Journal daily…on my cell-phone. Others may get their news sources through scrolling on Twitter or Facebook.
As social media develops, I think journalism will become obsolete in different forms. By this, I don’t think newspapers will be selling straight off the shelf like they did before. If everyone can access news from their computer, phone, or television screen what is the point?
