Nowadays, people get information through news and papers, but meanwhile are uncertain about the truth of these news. Should we believe the journalists? What qualities should a good journalist or a correspondent have?

In
this
era of technological advancement,
although
the print and electronic media is becoming a vital source of information for the general public, yet people are having doubts about authenticity of the news. People should have confidence in the correspondents for their efforts as disinformation are generally from managerial levels and reporters should
also
be well educated and aware of their responsibilities to excel in their discipline. It is a well-known fact that journalism is not an easy forte as they have to risk their lives and work hard to update their audience and readers about different situations, so we should acknowledge their work and boost their confidence by trusting them. As no one is flawless, so they can
also
make mistakes but these are not deliberate and margin of error should be given to them.

For instance
