3. TheConclusionBoth objectivity and ethics arepersonal and subjective things. Each journalist or scholar defines these termsin different ways because of psychological differences among people.
Nowadays, objectivity is losingpower in the west media, because of market forces, because of changes insociety s interests. Media and journalists are trying to survive on mediamarket and try to do it in any way, even oppressing some moral concepts ofprofession. Ethics is a very personal term.
