Gratification in journalism practice: An assessment of Kuwaiti journalists’ perspective

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Media ethics generally recommends journalists avoiding gratification in order to maintain objectivity and professional integrity. This study investigated the application of this ethical injunction in Kuwait. It surveyed and interviewed Kuwaiti journalists on their attitude towards gratification. Results indicate a breach of this ethical recommendation. Reasons for this include lack of media ethics education among journalists and the absence of ethical guidance by media owners. In addition, journalism in Kuwait is largely a part-time job.
