Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - THIS & THAT -

I think jour­nal­ism, es­pe­cially eth­i­cal jour­nal­ism, on the whole is some­thing we haven’t got the hang of yet. I think those who do try to give a live feed of what’s hap­pen­ing are try­ing to do what they think is right, by try­ing to keep us up­dated on the re­al­ity of the sit­u­a­tion. But I also think they need to make a big­ger ef­fort on giv­ing con­text on the footage and not just sen­sa­tion­alise it. The prac­tice of eth­i­cal jour­nal­ism also means they need to show re­spect and be ac­count­able for their ac­tions.
