The financial success of the news magazine format in prime time television has created ethical problems because of pressure to generate a profit. The cost reduction policies of the 1980s are blamed for converting broadcast news from a money-losing but credible institution to entertainment. The financial stakes are high, since the profits from news magazine programing are much higher than entertainment programming because of the relative production costs. The producers of prime time news programming see the challenge in maintaining journalistic and ethical standards in the face of financial pressure.
