Profesionalsim in the workplace HW #5

http://www.globalethics.org/newsline/2009/09/08/wounded-marine/

The mass distribution of photos and other media is always a ethical decision. Not everyone is going to agree with everything that is posted. The Associated Press published a picture of a fatally wounded soldiers prior to his death despite the pleas of the grieving family not to publish the picture. Even tho it was against the will of the soldiers parents to publish the picture i believe that it is important for the public to be educated on what the results of war we are fighting truly is. It may be unethical to go against the parents requests but i also consider it unethical to give inaugurate descriptions of events taking place in our own backyard or overseas at war and pictures like this tell it like it is.
