I’d say A because the newspaper does still have a business to run but still be respectful of the other company
B and D
Got it right on test
most ethical would be to be as transparent as you can without hurting the company.
B and D are the correct answers.
To explain the correct answer, let's use the discarding method based on the definition of ethical, which is something related to moral principles about what is wrong and right.
Letter A would be incorrect since offering a discount with no apparent reason would mean that they don't have the same standards for everyone or that everyone could use something else than money to pay for advertisement.
C is also incorrect since the action could be misunderstood and bring problems to the newspaper by publishing the ad without being paid for that.
E is also incorrect because they would be showing or spreading information they might not be allowed to show or spread.
B and D are correct. Confirming information is essential in the newspaper industry, otherwise this could lead to misinform public and create a negative image of the company. Also D is correct since not reporting the attempt would also be part of it, at least by omission.
B and D
B and D
B. and D.
Any kind of attempt of trading favors or different means of corruption of the kind explained in the excerpt should be reported.
Before reporting the case, make sure the information you have is true in order not to make the mistakes. The case should be reported completely transparent and honest, in accordance with the situation.
A and C options are wrong because by following them you are becoming the part of the problem yourself, and accepting trading favors which should not be legal. No matter how loyal the advertiser or partner is, you should do what is wrong and not what is best for your own gain.
The option D is also wrong as it does not refer to the legal stances or senior authorities which should solve the case. In that case, you are trying to solve it yourself, possibly to get more gain, and it is likely to make even more mess then honestly and transparently reporting the problem to those who are in charge of the situation.
confirm the company’s expansion through other sources before reporting it
be completely transparent in reporting about the company’s attempt to trade favors
me again i think it the first one and the second one
the most ethic and honorable thing for the newspaper to do are:
be completely transparent in reporting about the company’s attempt to trade favors.
contact other construction companies to tell them about the situation.
these two options are the most ethic because both promote the market fair course, by telling the other competitors about the company attempt to get ahead in the market by trading favors, the market is guaranteed equality and justice in the trading of goods and services.
