Re: What is Adam Baldwin thinking?

Can I just ask a hypothetical. Assume for one minute we actually are NOT a misogynist movement. Keep in mind we are going up against journalists and PR people. If our claims about corruption is in fact true, isn't it POSSIBLE they are spreading a false narrative to discredit us? Yes, there is harass...

"There is no need to push it further than that." So, we should let all these people have all the authority that comes with Journalism, but NONE or the regulations? Humans by design are infallible, prone to bias. The Code of Journalism Ethics and Standards is a tool to help curb that natura...

Again, these opinions aren't just my own. That video I posted clearly gives examples of a defined Conflict of Interest from an expert in the field of Journalistic Ethics.

Re: What is Adam Baldwin thinking?

The goal of journalism isn't to be 100% objective, but to strive to be as close to that as you can. Pretty sure that was also in the link I posted earlier. Being friends with the subject of an article pulls you further away from being as objective as humanly possible, hence it's bad.

Re: What is Adam Baldwin thinking?

That's what professionalism means. Unfortunately you can't have your cake and eat it too. Again, no one is saying they can't be friends, but that if they do become friends the journalist should recuse themselves from writing about their friends. Simply put, you can't be sure about objectivity when i...

Re: What is Adam Baldwin thinking?

That is a good question. Basically, I would like to remind journalists about the line between writer and subject. I'm not saying a journalist can't be friends with a dev. Just that if they are, they recuse themselves. They should also refrain from writing a story about someone who is supporting them...

Re: General LRL Stream Feedback

Its a bummer that some episodes seem to have been removed from Twitch but havent been uploaded to youtube yet. I'm about a month behind and trying to catch up. I noticed that James playing minecraft on July 31st and Alex playing STALKER on August 1st are missing from twitch.

I have no idea why, but I think seeing Morgan and Cam acting off of one another would be endlessly hilarious. I don't know why. Am I alone in this?
