There Comes A Time

Within many stories of war and/or other controversial topics, there comes a time for journalists as well as editors to decide if something is worth publishing. This is a very sensitive and difficult process.  As seen in Torie DeGhett’s article “The War Photo No One Would Publish”, the line between informative and too explicit is thin. A picture that may move people may also offend many others. It is our duty as journalists to inform the public through deciding what pictures and facts are worthy. We must decide if they are adding to the story in a positive manner and not just put in there with no context. It is a hard job, but it is ours and we must strive to deliver for the public.
