REPORTING AND RESEARCH ETHICS
"60 Minutes" and the Benghazi Scandal Trap
LARA LOGAN'S ETHICAL ISSUES
She reported the apology of the broadcast of the falsified report, that was later retracted but never corrected and re-produced.
She continued to defend Davies' report despite noticing the allegations of it being falsified, including by the FBI.
Her focus prior to the interview was off-point as she didn't tackle more on the service-member and the diplomat on either of their perspectives and inputs that could help avoid tragic events like this in embassies around the world, whether American or not.
She fails to mention Davies' book publisher in the interview, or during the apologetic newscast which she later admitted to being a mistake on her own hands.
DYLAN DAVIES ETHICAL ISSUES
Changing name from Dylan Davies to Morgan Jones.
Overly exaggerating the view of the Ambassador's death by using the words "It was the Ambassador, dead. Yeah, shocking."
Overly exaggerating an unvalidated fight with a terrorist. "Oh he went down, yeah." "He dropped?" "Yeah, like... like a stone."
In addition, Davies apparently told a different story to the FBI prior to the 60 Minutes interview. How much data was falsified in his interviews are unknown.
This is a dishonor to lie for such a tragedy as Davies is reported to be a British Army veteran. No matter any other bravery he has supported, a public lie as such is typically seen as disgraceful.
‘Here’s the truth. We don’t know’: How false reports of Boston bombing arrest left media outlets scrambling
Dozens of major news networks and newspapers acting like naive high-schoolers spreading gossip just to be the first to provide the valid news of the Boston Marathon Massacre.
Several news organizations and and newspapers reported between the arrest of a suspect or the suspect being taken into custody: neither of which had any proof as the FBI later stated.
The Associated Press unfortunately stood by its claim with an anonymous source.
Similar reporting continued for topics such as the health care plan under President Obama, and camera surveillance regarding the second bomb.
Television and newspaper are not the only ways of providing the news these days and therefore the race to spread false or incomplete news reports was done through social media posts (i.e., Twitter), and NewsAlerts.
Due to the endless tweets and false tv reports, even the news stations were sounding like the frightened civilians feeling annoyed or stressed about the necessary updates to help them feel safe when stepping outside post another (but minor) terrorist attack.
Despite the majority of the news reports literally including the words "We don't know," regarding the identities or locations of the terrorist suspects, it was reported of the supposed weaponry used by the suspects at the Boston Marathon as show in the image posted in the article.
Blondes 'to die out in 200 years'
A study conducted by German scientists that was reported in 2002.
Finland is believed to be the last known provider of blondes due to its high population of blonde men and women.
According to the studies, to "save the blondes" you and your spouse's parents must all be blondes.
It is believed that the dyed-hair blondes are the result of this "endangered species" known as natural blondes because of the attraction to men (whether blondes or not).
There is one counter to this theory (or supposed prediction) of human evolution where the natural blondes won't disappear as it's not naturally possible to become extinct unless by a natural disadvantage.
