In the wake of yet another media scandal, asks Huffington Post Canada's Claire Penhorwood, is there any way to teach the future generation of news gatherers how to curb, or stop, unethical decisions?

Well, for starters, she writes, we have to start them young. "As soon as kids or young teenagers start to ask their parents about something they read online, or something they saw on the news, it should be discussed," says Penhorwood, who is, as she says, only at the tender age of 20, but still very aware kids have way more information at their disposal than she did growing up.

"Parents should go online with their kids and show them examples of good news and then news that might be slightly slanted or skewed in accordance with that particular organization's viewpoint," she adds, "The catalyst for change in our society's media landscape could very well start at the kitchen table."
