    I didn't read a lot Superman comics that deals with Clark being a journalist, but in those who do, in the beginning of the mew 52, there are a lot of interesting issues. They deal with Infotainment, reach and ethics and with the way Clark stands up for the little guy, which is why he became a journalist.

    So.. Superman is a liar and a fraud that has been in front of our face for nearly a century. What exactly is Justice and the American way? Racial injustices, slavery, prejudice, the presidency, the corrupt judicial system? Yeah... Superman is not as great as he's been projected. He wont kill but let others die for the crimes his villain's create, wont end the senseless war over oil in the middle east, wont expose shady government operations. All i will say about Superman just like I'd say about this god people believe in, is "Whence Cometh Evil"?

    I know this is FILM Theory, but the fact that you barely mentioned the comics, makes this feel incomplete. All I could think while watching this was, "Is the Daily Planet just as bad in the comics, or are the movies misrepresenting them?" I feel like this would be the most important thing, yet you didn't even touch on it.
    I once read a comic about Clark's early days as Superman, when he first get a job at the Daily Planet. In the comic, Lex Luthor funds a research proving that Superman is, most likely, an alien. Initially, Clark refuses to report on this, because he's afraid it will hurt Superman's image, but his boss makes them, and as he predicted, the public turned against Superman.

    You do realize Clark barely writes stories about Superman right? Thats mostly Lois and Perry. Hell, in issue #4 or 5 of Dan Jurgens' New 52 superman run they state that Clark usually does stories on the poor an disenfranchised. Do more research man.

    So what does the SPJ say about journalists "Breaking and entering" on private property and going as far as hacking or stealing files and documents while investigating a story? Cause I've seen TV shows and some movie have the journalist character do that with no repercussions other than the few times they're caught by the "bad guys."

    Let's add another irony log on the fire in the form of a cartoon series that had too big of an idea for its own good, Larryboy. For those who don't know, Larryboy is a superhero spoof in the world of Veggie Tales. This form of the most famous vegetal cucumber eventually got a short-lived spin-off flash cartoon called Larryboy the Series. And this is where Big Idea might have struck moral genius whether this was intentional, or one very lucky joke. Just like Superman and Spiderman, Larryboy works at the news printing company, the Daily Bumble, as a means to stay up-to-date with criminal activity in the city of Bumblyburg. However, he isn't a journalist and he isn't a photographer, but a custodian. As for the reason why, the episode throws the line 'it was the only job he was qualified for' to complete the punchline. However, since Larry can't influence the news going on, it makes the Daily Bumble the most reliable news source with a superhero on staff.

    Society of Professional Journalists is a joke. So is the Pulitzer Prize. So is journalism ethics. You may as well push for "draining the swamp". SPJ does not give a shit, they explicitly state their code is just guidelines and jurnos need to make up their own mind. News is an entertainment game to make money, not an institution of integrity. That's the reality.

    the thing is, you didn't take it to the Logical conclusion. in the New DCU, Perry White knows. (Or at least suspects after the reboot) It's why he assigned Clark to sports, to avoid such conflicts of interest. He sees superman as an asset. and he got him on the payroll cheap. And really, are the nerd glasses that good of a disguise. I would not be surprised if in a superman movie, the Daily Planet was taken hostage, and Perry White dropped the dumb act and told Clark to "Deal with the problem" or at least gave him an easy excuse to isolate himself from the group.

    I hate it when superheroes ruin journalistic integrity. That’s why I like J Jonah; he cares about that crap, including the truth and anonymity of his sources. Yet... other superheroes who pretend to be journalists don’t do that JUST BY BEING JOURNALISTS. Gahhhh.

    Can you please, please do a theory on ONCE UPON A TIME?
    I think....

    That every character is evil or born from evil apart from rumplestiltskin. Rumplestiltskin or Gold, is the only one who can carry generations of evil inside him and still be a simple shopkeeper. He also sacrificed himself, twice.
    Snow's mother, however, was responsible for the entire curse timeline. Snow and charming kidnapped a baby, filled it with darkness and sent it to another world. Gold's son (henrys dad) was only good because Gold brainwashed him to be good. There is tons more....

    Saying that Clark can't be a reporter because he's Superman and therefore is biased is an asinine position to take. Everybody has an opinion; if having an opinion prevented you from being a reporter than nobody would be a reporter.
    That's why that ethics thing at the beginning told you to be aware of your biases, not to eliminate them. Because we can't eliminate our opinions, we can only do our best to ensure that we value truth over our opinions and that we are willing to revise our opinions, or at least accept the validity of other opinions, so that we don't compromise the truth in reporting.

    I am not a fan of this theory really for it making me feel pretty down (still good work though MatPat) but after watching the most recent theory about Article 13 and how many lives could be ruined by it, I'm just letting a bunch of videos from my favorite creators run nonstop whether I like the video itself or not. In a few months time said wonderful people could be suffering, and if some retention time now is the best I can do for them then I'm gonna do it. Along with spreading the news, but I'm thinking worst case scenario here.
