4/1 Post... Ethics

I really enjoyed reading Sonia Nazario's part of the chapter that deals with protecting sources. She follows a boy and his illegal journey to the US. She had to reconstruct the story in some parts and she also gave advice to writers to research before going out into the field. I think this is important because you at least want a small background of what your are getting yourself into and if this is a story worth reporting. In this specific story she wanted to investigate the specific dangers she would be encountering and decide on the ways she would approach the situations when they occurred.
She also points out:
1. Narrative stories must convey reality
2. When we interview, we risk our subjects seeing us as something other than journalists
3. To avoid changing people's lives, we might have to withhold some information from our readers
