Newspapers have the power to say what they want, how they want it as long at it is truthful and effective in everyday life. However with that certain power comes responsibility and the idea news should ideally be legal and ethical, and should stray away from misuse of liability and slander. This thought leads to the question of: Does this story have legal points and information? And in addition: Can this story be viewed as a truthful and ethical piece?
Qualitative researchers aim to gather an in-depth understanding of human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior. Qualitative Research is primarily exploratory research. It is used to gain an understanding of underlying (original) reasons, opinions, and motivations. It provides insights into the problem or helps to develop ideas or hypotheses for potential quantitative research.
Neutrality and objectivity are incredibly important when regarding fact, but the public should be exposed to a diversity of opinions. In order to fully understand a situation, one must attempt to understand another's point of view. This has been made a great deal easier with new technologies. It supports an age of tolerance and openness to those different from what one known. Additionally, if opinions are censored, it could cause a situation where certain groups are targeted, and only a select few are actually able to publish and show their opinion to the public.

Disagreements highlight differentiating points of views and brings about thought-provoking ideas. Disagreements challenges an easy consensus and requires or pushes for a deeper more insightful recognition or judgement of a topics. As a part of human curiosity, attempts to acquire more knowledge to further our understanding of what is presented, there lies a distinctive importance in getting to know the counter argument or ‘other side’ of the argument.

Qualitative research “refers in a broad sense to research that produces descriptive data, people’s own written or spoken words and observable behavior” (Taylor, Bogdan & DeVault, 2016). It has to do with the significance people attribute to things in their own lives. The data in qualitative research are words that are collected and then analyzed. Ethical concerns are more complex for qualitative research than for quantitative methods because the methods applied in qualitative studies are more personal with the research playing a greater role for the investigator-participant relationship, hence ethical interaction are complex. The researcher is researching aspects of private lives of people and putting the findings available to the public, so it gives rise to numerous ethical issues, and the researcher has to be in a position to apply principles, rules and guidelines into the research study.

Attribution theories, very differently, are theories of more clearly stated or related. Even though explanations and feature guesses (trait) based on what you 've been told are occasionally related, they are clear/separate in many ways. Most theorist sort out explanations of success or failure using polarities of three characteristics that can help define personality: locus of control, stability and Controllability
Grounded theory also knows as inductive approach gives importance to two main ideas, one is to highlighting on data analysis within the boundaries of data and another is to develop new theories from data. There are two type of grounded theory, formal and substantive. If you are viewing the data in an aspect of social life and asking questions of why and how then it is
