Journalists, like other media practitioners, act as the “voice and ears” of the public. They write about socially and politically relevant news, and usually work for newspapers, and in TV and radio stations.
Credibility is very important for journalists because this will dictate whether the general public believes on what they write about. Accuracy is also important because a single mistake can ruin the entire story, and so as the credibility of the writer.
