This Books Title is Made for This Chapter

I enjoyed what Katherine Boo had to say in her Truth and Consequences segment. I like how honest she says to be with the subjects; "there will be a photo that makes them look fat." I thought this was amusing but also very honest. After writing a story you want to be able to feel comfortable running into them again, and if you can't I like how Boo says, "you should ask yourself whether you really told the truth."

A question I have for discussion after reading this is, what if you do tell the truth and the person is still upset with you? Is it considered bad journalism if you reveal something about a person that they normally would want disclosed?
