- Journalism Code of Ethics
Code of Ethics outlines the values of the business or organization, how professionals are supposed to approach problems, the ethical principles based on the organization's core values and the standards to which the professional is held. "The term ethics comes from the Greek word 'ethos,' which means character. An ethical person is a person of good character who strives to make 'right' choices. Those 'right' choices are self-determined by each individual. Ultimately, ethics is voluntary conduct that is self-enforced. Although ethics is related to law, it differs from law in that law is socially determined and socially enforced. Law tells us what we can do; ethics, what we should do. What is legal may not be what is ethical. Having the right to say something doesn’t make it right to say it... A code of ethics should be a primary reference source for student journalists. It should be part of the curriculum and readily available not only to media staffs but also to those served by news media and those who oversee production. Reputable conduct by student journalists helps secure the public trust and news media credibility. A code of ethics serves as the foundation for free and responsible student media." Randy J Swickle, Introduction of Model Code of Ethics
