Would You Rather: Drink a full bottle of Spicy Brown Mustard or Drink a full bottle of Hot & Spicy Ketchup? Both have to be done in one sitting, so you can't take a break. No choosing 'other', be a sport. ;p
Because when you look at the universe, the sun, the stars, the planets, when you look at creation, everything operates under the law under which they were created. And even though humans have free will, I don't think we're alive for no reason, though it remains to be seen the percentage of people that actually discover their purpose. Natural disasters operate under the laws of nature, which, I believe, God has control over. He has both an active and passive will, so with His passive will, He allows certain things to happen. Why? I don't have the answer to your question, but I believe they can act as signs of the time. The Bible says there will be wars and rumors of wars; nation shall rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom; there will be famine, pestilence, and earthquakes in diverse places. With that taken into account, I think that many natural disasters today are a result of God's wrath and displeasure. But I can understand that. A lot of people feel the same way. Personally, I have never experienced cognitive dissonance with my religious beliefs.
Ehh. I'm sure even the nicest person on earth would go a little bit crazy if someone employed 5027 ways to make them angry. But I'll take your word for it, since you're (probably) still alive. Loki is the real victim. Poor misunderstood trickster god. (says the internet)
You can say that about many professions. People in general don't care about ethics these days. There are plenty of journalists outside of mainstream journalism that care about ethics and law, though. I mean that journalism is in transition. The role of media in society is being redefined, and the future of journalism is being questioned as many news sources are going digital instead of print. With more digital media sources, readers want their news immediate, which can cause inaccuracies and not being thorough enough on the part of the journalist. At the same time, it's becoming easier and easier to access news and information on the part of both the average citizen journalist and the professional journalist. So the question many ask, is there even a need for the profession when people can easily do the same work and call themselves a journalist? Also, people pick and choose what media they want to consume. They read the ones that confirm their viewpoints and blatantly ignore the ones that don't, so are the journalists really to blame, or are the readers who are too lazy or too stuck in their own viewpoints to be open to other points of view? We live in a world today where everyone wants a voice, but not everybody is given a voice. Of course, journalists that just make stuff up (and we learned about journalists that have won top awards off of fake or fabricated stories) aren't true journalists. Research is a large part of what we do, and it's also important to feature both sides of the argument. But I wouldn't describe "making stuff up" as the majority of journalists. I say Trump created it because he knew what he wanted to get out of the media. He knew what type of response he wanted to receive. What is the media supposed to do? If what he says and does is not reported on, then the media is criticized for not doing their jobs. If they report on what he says and does, then they're criticized for telling "fake news" when there's clearly a tape with Trump saying that exact phrase. So either way it goes, the media is blamed for everything. I have seen just as many "conservative media" as "liberal media." It's on both sides of the spectrum. There might be anti-Republican media, but there are also anti-Democratic media. Me, I'm neither Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative so I don't really care about those spectrums. And I agree, Trump is a fighter, but his war on the media is stupid. To ban someone from doing their job is not democracy. Ethics should work on both sides of the spectrum, and neither side employs ethics. But like I said, if you really want to, if you're really interested in unbiased media, there are sources out there that try to remain as impartial as possible. Here's a chart for your convenience. In general though, people are biased, and they flock to the media that agrees with their biases. http://data.amirite.net/user_images/5b6b067924cd9.jpg
