Scandals are useful because they focus our attention on problems in ways that no speaker or reformer ever could.

Over the years, we have heard of numerous scandals that has brought to limelight issues that no one would even dare to talk about, we have seen individuals own up to being victims prior to the time, who for one reason or another were not able to speak. Therefore it would be unfair to deny the fact that scandals have helped to facilitate and placed the necessary emphasis on problems slowly eating up the fabric of societal moral values.

Throughout history, scandals has been an element of change at one point or the other from cases of bribe and corruption where multinational companies are caught up in bribery scandals in order to win contracts and also for tax evasions, scandals such as these have brought a lot of attention on the activities of foreign multinational companies. As a consequence of this, more stringent regulations have been placed on taxation, companies are now being charged to court for tax irregularities.

Futhermore, pertinent issues such as sexual harrassment at work has been addressed in recent times as a result of harrasment scandals, cases where a CEO or company executive would demand sexual favours for employment or promotion are rampant these days. These issues have been around but the focus is increased when a scandal happens and ways in which issues such as these would be prevented are discussed. Regulations such as equal opportunity employment, workplace code of business conduct are all laid down policies that discourage issues such as these

In universities and institutions of learning we see cases of scandals, students paying bribes for grades and lecturers demanding favours from their students, these issues are given priority when it results in a scandal.

Finally, when scandals occur a lot of people are hurt, families are broken, even institutions collapse, it is therefore not necessary and sufficient that issues become hot topics for debate as a result of scandals, there are other instances where issues have been dealt with, not as a result of it being newsworthy.
