Our words and how we deploy them in writing can cause our audiences to act in the world. These actions can have consequences for our stakeholders. Since we are the ones that can move our audiences to act, that means we have some responsibility for those actions. In other words, we assume ethical obligations to our stakeholders whenever we create text and release it into the world. This means we need to think carefully about how our words may cause our audience to act and who these actions might affect. Writers almost always have a relation to their readers. For example, If the article being written is about politics, this can morally sway a reader to one political avenue or the other. Another severe example is where an article can be misunderstood, and a person makes a rash decision, like selling their home and buying lottery tickets. To prevent things like this, writers should address their ethical obligations to stakeholders by making the media unbiased and direct.
