This paper uses the Daily Tribune for a case analysis because of its interest in the human service paradigm of journal writing. The paper contends that the advertisement department in the case was insistent upon representing itself in a manner that was false and that the publisher was asking of the writing staff to forfeit some of their morals, as well as their beliefs in what a newspaper is supposed to do; report the news. The paper emphasizes how workers cannot work in a vacuum setting, that is a working environment that isolates their workers and does not allow them to see how faulty other parts of the newspaper can be, as well as how performance is affected for the writer if he does not know exactly his purpose in writing.

From the Paper:

"For journalists, writing promotes knowledge of the community to the community and is engrossed in up to date facts about issues, and the writer's main impetus for writing is to report the truth despite advertiser woes. From field experience, journalists are able to deliver to the community the way in which ETH is truly treating the public. Since ETH is leaving their main city branches open, and closing the small community branches of their health service, that presents to the community what it is the corporation is truly focused; and Rick's journalist is merely representing the human interest side of the closings including the affect it has had on patients as well as employees. The human interest side of a story deserves a voice in journalism; for it is with the public that the writer has a service to perform."
