- 75% true that is popular. Journalists have egos too. They want to be famous and popular.
- No! Journalists have high ethics. Their love for truth and accuracy is more important than being famous and popular.

75% true. Just look at all the fake news. Sadly there are very few journalists who put the truth above money and fame

Depends on what you mean with journalists. If you are thinking about people who take Journalism seriously and works for major news organizations then they follow an ethical code of sorts that in effect means they will not knowingly write things that are not true. They are fueled by pride and reputation so to speak and no single story is important enough to risk that.
Then we have those who are not in this hardcore group of journalists. They might choose to fudge some facts to get a better headline because that is the only real way they can get attention for their work recently.
Lastly we have those that tries to use the reputation of the hardcore journalists to manipulate people. People who go on about the "truth" or fake media.
