Exercise for understanding a topic -  Read the following passage, then answer the questions

Journalists' main goal is to ensure the right of citizens to truthful and important information, which allows them to form adequate impression about social processes and about situations in the modern world. The journalist bears responsibility before the society in general, before the law and before the professional association. The social responsibility of the journalist requires that he acts in accordance with his personal ethical standards. However, sometimes journalists are in the face of people whose news and facts are revealed. These people threaten journalists to prevent them from publishing the truth.

               Many people think they can avoid bad publicity by threatening journalists with violence, or with legal action. Such threats should always be resisted. Junior journalists should always report any threat which they have received to their editor. If the threat was a threat of violence, then the editor should seriously consider informing the police. It is usually a criminal offence to threaten violence against somebody, and journalists are protected by such a law as much as anybody else.

              If the threat is of legal action, then the editor's response will depend upon the facts of the case. The editor should know the law well enough to judge whether or not to take the threat seriously. If he suspects that there may be grounds for legal action, he should consult a lawyer. Then, if he finds that he or his reporter is in the wrong, of course he should immediately set things right. If, however, he finds that there is no basis for legal action, then he and his reporter can happily ignore the empty skills.
