Are you guys excited for 2015!? I am! I have so many things that I am looking forward to: increasing my online presence, meeting new people, and overall building my brand. What do you have in store for 2015, and what are you looking forward to?
Since I want to get into the advertising business, I thought a fun way to wrap up the year would be to discuss what I thought the best commercials of the year were.
As the year comes to an end, I am starting to reflect on what I did in this past year so I can achieve what I want for next year. One of those things is to increase my blogging presence and I present a new weekly installment: “Read This” it will be a weekly roundup of articles I found interesting that I would like to share with you all. I would love to hear your feedback, if you like this please comment below, or if you don’t also comment below so that I can know how to improve it.
With the recent events in Furguson and New York City regarding protests and officers killing unarmed black men, the importance of unbiased reporting is greater than ever. Here are 3 tips for maintaining objectivity:
1. Have an open mind
If you feel a certain way about a topic or situation, make sure to try to remove that bias by keeping an open mind. This will allow you to cover all aspects of the story.
2. Get a variety of voices,
When looking for sources don’t just look for those that agree with your stance on the topic, because the viewer won’t be allowed to form their own opinions.
3. If the conflict of interest is too great, give the story to someone else
If the story is about a friend, family member, or someone that you know and you are afraid to write anything bad about them, then pass the story on to another person because you don’t want to ruin your reputation or your company’s.
