I. Проставьте номера предложений так, чтобы получилось связное эссе на тему: «People rely on the media for news and current events. What do you think a good journalist should be and what is the role of the media? Give reasons to support your answer».



Television may well also be the primary source by which the public learn about the world.
Therefore, working in media carries a massive responsibility and I believe journalists and editors should be very aware of their moral responsibility when thinking about which perspective they adopt or view they show.
The media presents the news to us through television, newspapers and radio.
It plays an enormous role in influencing peoples' thoughts.


The point is, the stronger the media, the louder the opinions.
Some claim, a journalist's job is solely to report the news; to convey as clear and factual a picture as possible.
In my opinion, total objectivity is impossible, as nearly everybody has his own views on important issues.
Others will argue, however, that the best journalist comes from people who are engaged in the world around them and have passions, feelings and opinions.


You can't be neutral at all times, nor can pictures tell the whole story.
Like the novelist, I also question its power as I do not believe the media shows "the whole truth".
Many accused the Western media of presenting a sanitized view of the Iraq war, and others criticized the footage and the perspective of the Arab media.
A famous Russian novelist said the press had become the greatest power within the Western World and asked by whom had it been elected and to whom was it responsible.
However, if the media is supposed to show only a censored truth, I think there remains little point to the media.


I believe this is good, responsible journalism.
In conclusion, the media affects the public opinion and also reflects where it comes from.
Journalists and the media do their job well when they not only inform, but also acknowledge their personal perspective and the responsibility and influence they carry.
