People are based on information, what society thinks and curiosity. No one can stand on their own and try to understand the world. Everybody has to have access to a database to be able to develop at the same rate as the rest of the world.
However, although self-esteem and satisfying ourselves with knowledge is really important, and the struggle to know the truth is mostly justifiable, sometimes this curiosity can cause problems. The availability and publication of every secret information has to have a limit. If there is no limit there is chaos and problems. Even the truth should have a limit so that everybody can be equal. People like to push things to the edge. But not everybody has the right to know everything. That’s why we have Journalists!
Journalism is a very important and a hard job to work in. It is based on knowing the truth and telling it to the people with the least harm and most truth. A normal person can react really surprised to discover a truth but a journalist, just the opposite, must keep clam and look for reasons. If you discover the truth and decide to share it with the rest of the world, it should have limits. Or it will blow up and get messy. If you are waking people up you’ve got to have a reason and a plan or they just fall back to sleep again. Journalists must wake people up, give them directions and keep the distance to the borders of harm. The truth must be analyzed in an orderly fashion so neither the stories nor the people who are involved get messed up or are obliged to disconnect from the world.
Journalists have this unbearably saintly responsibility of filtering what’s news worthy, ie. what’s the pure truth that is worth delivering to the public so they realize an injustice but that is also palatable enough for the community, state, security or simply reputation.
