Abstract :

Journalists have traditionally reported on problems in society. Now they are reporting more on solutions. Stories have dealt with solutions for the availability of guns, inadequate health care, housing, and poor education. Journalists need to make sure that, in writing such stories, they are viewed as objective reporters and not as advocates for social programs.
