Working with dialogue-based journalism and having a closer relationship with the public brings out new dilemmas. Some of them are intellectual questions about the role of the journalist and journalism. Others are more concrete and related to the daily work and others again address the guiding principles for quality and independence.
It is worth discussing the dilemmas no matter what type they are. The dialogical approach to journalism uncovers a lot of grey areas and a lot of important things to consider.
We asked our students which dilemmas or difficult situations they met while working with dialogue-based projects, and they came up with the list below. We have arranged their questions in three categories and recommend that you discuss these with your students to make the them reflect on dilemmas, challenges and balances. We have also added some suggestions for answering the dilemmas.
