How far do you go? April 25, 2011

I was browsing the Internet and happened to catch a look at some photos from all the things going on in Libya. There was a slideshow of photos that a photographer took showing a little girl covered in blood. That blood was from her parents who had just been shot because they didn’t take heed to the warning that soldiers had given them.

That picture was one of the few that sparked a question of ethics in my mind. When I thought about the overall picture of everything going on, taking those photos weren’t inappropriate. But if I were there taking photos, I most likely wouldn’t have taken a photo of that based on my ethics.

I thought it would be an interesting topic for upcoming journalist to think about, so I looked for an article on the matter. There are some things set in stone as unethical in journalism, but some others are still based on people’s own digressions.
