This case study provides a real-life account of an ethical dilemma in journalism faced by a young reporter in the TV news industry. It explores the points of view of both the journalist and that journalist’s supervisor. It aims to spur critical thinking on the part of the reader, and to show that not all decisions can be grouped into ‘right and wrong.’
