I am a journalist myself and have monitored in recent months problems encountered by journalists around the region.
Though I believe in freedom of speech I do have reserves on some journalist who seek fame and money even at the cost of their subjects.  I feel this is becoming the thing here around neighbouring South Pacific islands now.  It appears to be foreign reporters who wants to change things and select so called 'sensational terms' to describe what maybe'  just a little storm blowing.  We journalist sometime want to prove to readers that by using sophisticated words we are the best in our field of work rather than write  what you see and here, not what you perceive your readers should read.
