So basically we traded ethics in journalism for fake news like Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC NEWS, Huffington Post, The Young Turks, InfoWars, Buzzfeed, and shit like that. Good to Fucking know integrity and truth mean nothing anymore
Yeah....journalism is no longer like that anymore. They break all the rules and guidelines shown in this video nowadays.

Idk I think he can fight for truth without telling the truth himself. He’s falling on the sword to protect the idea it represents. But hey that’s just a theory, A PHILOSOPHICAL THEORY.

Let's not forget that DECU Perry White was willing to hire some dude with zero knowledge of how journalism works and no established qualifications to be a journalist, based purely on Lois's recommendation. Anyone else besides me find that a little messed up?

MatPat: thank you so much for so prominently featuring Chris Reeve. A couple of years ago, after seeing a TV spot that briefly featured Chris, my then 62 yr old mother said the following:"You know, I have always loved comics and superheroes, but when I left the theater after seeing Christopher Reeve in that costume, I left believing there could be a Superman." Comic books. They're genetic. ❤

Actually, if Superman wanted the job to benefit him being Superman then acting as a responsible reporter actually could make him a much more interesting character. What most writers often miss when writing Superman is looking for a physical weakness when in reality an emotional one could be just as effective. He’s still a man who feels emotions and has to bear the weight of their actions. Take the classic Greek gods for example. Despite all their power they’re short sighted, temperamental, impulsive, idealistic and paranoid, and these are the qualities that often lead to their downfall. Having Superman see firsthand how great of an effect those with much less power than him can have but still trying to stay true to his morals would be an interesting conflict.

I didn't read a lot Superman comics that deals with Clark being a journalist, but in those who do, in the beginning of the mew 52, there are a lot of interesting issues. They deal with Infotainment, reach and ethics and with the way Clark stands up for the little guy, which is why he became a journalist.

So.. Superman is a liar and a fraud that has been in front of our face for nearly a century. What exactly is Justice and the American way? Racial injustices, slavery, prejudice, the presidency, the corrupt judicial system? Yeah... Superman is not as great as he's been projected. He wont kill but let others die for the crimes his villain's create, wont end the senseless war over oil in the middle east, wont expose shady government operations. All i will say about Superman just like I'd say about this god people believe in, is "Whence Cometh Evil"?

I know this is FILM Theory, but the fact that you barely mentioned the comics, makes this feel incomplete. All I could think while watching this was, "Is the Daily Planet just as bad in the comics, or are the movies misrepresenting them?" I feel like this would be the most important thing, yet you didn't even touch on it. I once read a comic about Clark's early days as Superman, when he first get a job at the Daily Planet. In the comic, Lex Luthor funds a research proving that Superman is, most likely, an alien. Initially, Clark refuses to report on this, because he's afraid it will hurt Superman's image, but his boss makes them, and as he predicted, the public turned against Superman.

You do realize Clark barely writes stories about Superman right? Thats mostly Lois and Perry. Hell, in issue #4 or 5 of Dan Jurgens' New 52 superman run they state that Clark usually does stories on the poor an disenfranchised. Do more research man.

So what does the SPJ say about journalists "Breaking and entering" on private property and going as far as hacking or stealing files and documents while investigating a story? Cause I've seen TV shows and some movie have the journalist character do that with no repercussions other than the few times they're caught by the "bad guys."

Let's add another irony log on the fire in the form of a cartoon series that had too big of an idea for its own good, Larryboy. For those who don't know, Larryboy is a superhero spoof in the world of Veggie Tales. This form of the most famous vegetal cucumber eventually got a short-lived spin-off flash cartoon called Larryboy the Series. And this is where Big Idea might have struck moral genius whether this was intentional, or one very lucky joke. Just like Superman and Spiderman, Larryboy works at the news printing company, the Daily Bumble, as a means to stay up-to-date with criminal activity in the city of Bumblyburg. However, he isn't a journalist and he isn't a photographer, but a custodian. As for the reason why, the episode throws the line 'it was the only job he was qualified for' to complete the punchline. However, since Larry can't influence the news going on, it makes the Daily Bumble the most reliable news source with a superhero on staff.

Society of Professional Journalists is a joke. So is the Pulitzer Prize. So is journalism ethics. You may as well push for "draining the swamp". SPJ does not give a shit, they explicitly state their code is just guidelines and jurnos need to make up their own mind. News is an entertainment game to make money, not an institution of integrity. That's the reality.
George Nelson

the thing is, you didn't take it to the Logical conclusion. in the New DCU, Perry White knows. (Or at least suspects after the reboot) It's why he assigned Clark to sports, to avoid such conflicts of interest. He sees superman as an asset. and he got him on the payroll cheap. And really, are the nerd glasses that good of a disguise. I would not be surprised if in a superman movie, the Daily Planet was taken hostage, and Perry White dropped the dumb act and told Clark to "Deal with the problem" or at least gave him an easy excuse to isolate himself from the group.
