IAH204 Michigan State University Ethics in Media Essay

Please help me write this essay base on the outline I created below and according to the attachment

This is my outline of the attachment below:

  • Main #1: why is this particular photo raising an issue? briefly discuss why the photos created ethical issues?
    • What’s going on: a man went on a shooting rampage
    • Why this is particularly sensitive:
      • It happened at the printing plant next door to the paper
      • Reporters and photographers know victims
      • 8 people killed, 12 wounded
    • The photo:
      • Shooting victim Richard Barger, who’s body is lying on a conveyor belt in the basement of the printing plant
      • Some journalists on the paper know him and his family
    • Problems
      • Violence: is the photo too graphic? Will it disturb those who know him?
      • Privacy: does the paper have the right to print it without the family’s permission?
      • Insensitive: is the photo insensitive to Mr. Barger and the people who knew him?
