Journalism requires us to only report on the truth. We have to show both sides of every story, and photograph/write on and explain tragedy. This can get tricky sometimes. Something that brought my ethics into question was shooting the memorials going on around the AME church. I wasn't sure whether or not to take pictures of the people who were crying. But then I remembered the photography lesson I taught, and how I told people that the most important thing that drew people in was the emotion. It was ethical for me to take pictures of these people crying to showcase the tragedy and the emotions. It was also important to me personally to showcase the love that surrounded the church that day, and the singing, and the togetherness. As a journalist, I made sure I didn't get too close to the crying people when I took pictures and sort of blended in. It was a great lesson on the ethical roots of journalism. In the yearbook, we make sure people don't make up quotes, and give the other side a chance to comment on a controversial story. Reporting the truth and the facts is ethical. Anything else is not.
