Richard Dawkins: Science is interesting and if you don't agree you can fuck off!


I think Richard Dawkins and Neil De'Grasse talked about this. Or one of them with someone else. That a lot of high ranking politicians are actually are agnostic or even atheist but coming out as such would be political suicide. They even said that they believe some high ranking people in the church are non-believers but are smart enough to abuse the people below them.

They also talked about why the U.S doesn't have the metric system. And hold on to your hats, everytime a congressman have suggested a change to it. High ranking church members have gone in and said that the metric system was designed by atheists and that if he supported it he would loose his religious followers.

Sorry I don't have source, probably a 1h lecture or something.

How is donating to a game's kickstarter whose creator is a friend of yours, and writing a review on said game by giving it a favorable review without disclosing that you are friends with said Creator of the game, not a Conflict of interest?

If you're writing a review on a friends game, you should reveal the relationship between you two, like I said earlier.

And donating to the kickstarter is just like buying the game. How is there a conflict of interest there?

>Donating to a friends kickstarter is not.

except it is. If you, as a journalist, are donating to a friend of yours who wants you to do a review on their game and on them, then yes. it is still unethical, You are supposed to recuse yourself from writing an article, or doing a piece on TV on it, or a podcast, or what have you, if you have a conflict of interest with the subject or disclose said conflict of interest, which many of these journos have not done, and continue to not do.

Donating to kickstarter doesn't give the journalist anything other than the game and whatever rewards there are for that kickstarter tier, the same as anybody else. They don't get any additional benefit from it for being a journalist. It doesn't give them a stake in the company or anything.
All you are doing is helping the game get made, which you are totally allowed to do. If a journalist likes a game, they can help (personally) to get it made, that is not a conflict of interest. It's only a conflict of interest if that game getting made is of benefit to them (ie if they were investors).

The reviewer DOES profit from it. These devs that are paying for favorable reviews and shit, are literally paying for these people's bar tabs, spa services, etc on top of giving them money TO review said game.
#9 - wyldek (10/28/2014) [-]
And yes, in that case it is very unethical. Letting someone buy good reviews is a violation of journalistic integrity.

Donating to a friends kickstarter is not. Giving a friends good reviews is, while questionable, most likely merely a case of bias. And even the best journalists have a little bias, it can't be helped. I believe that revealing the relationship beforehand is enough.
