Oh, here cometh the lecture. Note, though, that Cinder describes herself as a “reporter” as opposed to “journalist”. “Journalist” has come to mean “annoying AF activist with a media pass” who doesn't get that the job at hand is to report the news, not become it.
GeeGee has a cute “mad mode”. If she survives this whole episode, she could grow into quite the little lioness. – Coydog

As much as I find Cinder's approach sympathetic - there is something fishy about her reasoning. Because her story only becomes a rip-off when it causes a stir. And that doesn't happen through the established facts, but through "the conscience" of the readership. So I have a sneaking suspicion that Cinder is distancing herself from GeeGee's "conscience" not only out of her professional ethics as a reporter, but because she has very little appreciation for "God bless America."

Like plymayer said yesterday, "journalism in amercia died with Cronkite". Cinder's loyalty is to the story. But she also knows exactly where she's at: America. And in america, the more scandalous the story, the more people will read it. So, Cinder's loyalty may be to the story, but she's ultimately beholding to the people who will read it. Because at the end of the day, being a smart girl, Cinder knows which side her bread is buttered on and by whom. Dee - Succubus writer dude

This is the newspaper business not the Bible society. You want morality go there. Just imagine Rosalind Russell saying that to Cary Grant in one of those 1930s newspaper movies.

The press have become less reliable and less trust worthy than the propagandists of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.
