Ow can the business journalist help individuals get the most from their financial activities
This is a business journalism essay that I have placed under the first class order. Title: How can the business journalist help individuals get the most from their financial activities”.
Below is a rough brief sketch on how I would want you to frame and write the essay.
You need to say the roles of a business journalist reporter on how could they help to navigate individuals (people) to get the best out from all their financial activities (anything and everything that deals with money as in investments from banks, buying services like financial services, stocks, buying or selling products).
Because normally there are a lot of manipulation that is being done in the business world and people tend to get cheated and influenced and fooled into purchasing something and then losing their money or wasting their money. The public basically needs to get the proper perspective from the journalist. Deception and jargon has to be avoided. Lots of investigative journalism has to be done and a business journalist should always place themselves in the shoes of the public.
So basically a journalist should be giving financial advises to make sure people dont get cheated
This essay is basically a combination of personal finance and consumer reporting. You also need to include the ethical perspectives where a journalist has to avoid to help the people to get the from their financial activities. Ethical perspectives as in avoiding writing based on conflict of interest as in writing a review of a product or giving opinions of a product solely based on the comments given by their family members. Fabricationsis also another good point that you could use. Come up with also with roles of what a journalist should and should not do and it all has to be linked with how could the business journalist get the most form their financial activities.
I need very good related examples.
