ANSWER: Well, if I am on a shoe of a reporter, I must follow the
correct steps in making a reliable news. Even if I am only a student I
will always consider the professionalization in making any article.
First, I will do a background research with regards to this topic and
starts disseminating the correct information to my fellow reporters in

published it online or broadcast in air, I will review it first to avoid
any uncertainties.
