As many of you are well aware, I write for RetroJunk. I've written many different pieces relating to pop culture, as well as several interviews with entertainers of various sorts. I do this purely for the fun of it, and as I've grown older, I've come to object to a lot of what goes on in the media. I feel that the "if it bleeds, it leads" mentality to be very derisive to the idea of the news. I look at the newspaper every day and I want to say "Think positive, please!". It's the same thing with the news networks...There are plenty of good things going on in the world, but all you ever seem to hear about is the Hellish events of the world. I think the media tends to favor sensationalism over actual stories, and I always try to provide genuine content instead of shock value when I write. I wasn't always like that, though. Some of the things I wrote in my late teens and early 20s were so disturbing that in looking back on them, I realized that I wasn't showing the respect that I wish would've been shown to me. In recent years, I've made a concerted effort to write positively. I want my audience to feel positive after my articles...That's what I think is ethical. I don't think your average viewer or reader is that keen on reading sensationalized articles. I probably didn't write this properly, but I know that there are many on here who are writers, so I figured they might be able to offer their thoughts. Sincerely, John Kilduff... Or is this a matter of ethics altogether?
