dc.description.abstractUsing her internship experience in production of the local Kalamazoo Newschannel 3, a Sinclair station, the author reflects on the history of journalism, the three key issues facing broadcast journalism: resource scarcity; ratings dependence; and the impact of big business on local news, the relationship between democracy and the media, and concludes with personal code of ethics for the modern journalist: 1. Accountability above all. 2. Transparency in everything. 3. Accuracy over expediency (or profit). 4. Information over entertainment. 5. Storytelling not fear-mongering.en_US
