Bad Ethics

It is no hidden fact that Chelsea Hoffman gets paid to write her "articles". What Chelsea fails to do though, is add ethics to her "articles" and to her list of "accomplishments". describes ethics as 1) a system of moral principles, 2) the rules of conduct recognized in respect to a particular class of human actions or a particular group, culture, etc., 3) moral principles, as of an individual, and 4) that branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions.

Moral principles, and respect.....those are words used in the above definition of ethics. 

I found an article about "The Freelance Writer's Code of Ethics", just in case any of you were interested. 

1) Plagiarism
2) Honesty
3) Reliability
4) Integrity
5) Kindness

Chelsea has broken at least 3 of these; honesty, integrity, and kindness

While I do realize that Chelsea does not consider herself a journalist or a reporter, I still feel that it is appropriate to point out "The Journalist Code of Ethics", seeing as there is a common theme between the two; Be Truthful and Minimize Harm. I especially like the part about minimizing harm. 

Chelsea has failed to be honest on many occasions. Not only to the family that I am affiliated with, but to many other families as well (those stories are coming). She spews lies about deceased loved ones and their families. She is the farthest thing from honesty that you could be. 

Chelsea has also failed to have any kind of integrity at all. I'm not going to spell out what integrity means since it runs on the same lines as being honest, and I believe most of you have an idea already, but there is a link if you need to take a peek. 

Lastly, let us not forget about kindness. Most notable in the definition, is "friendly feeling". I have a feeling most of those who are reading this are wanting to punch something right now. It is certainly no secret that Chelsea is not friendly, at all. She has spelled that out many times for us all. 

Refer to the following:

You can see for yourself how "friendly" Chelsea is. Stop allowing Chelsea to pull the wool over your eyes (if it was ever there). She is not a professional in any manner what-so-ever. Her "work" is unethical, dishonest, not done with integrity, and certainly isn't nice. I don't have to point any of this out, because it's in all of the articles she's written. You can see for yourself, just do a search on her. You'll see what I mean.
