Description

Journalists frequently have to resolve ethical dilemmas, often in the rush to deadline, and their choices can have enduring effects on individuals and institutions. This is a report from the Australian Journalists Association, drawing up a recommended code of ethics for its members. The committee drew on submissions and on local and international sources to develop a new recommended code with better enforcement and more open-ness. A detailed commentary examines some of journalism's difficult and recurring ethical dilemmas, offering a number of fresh and practical responses. The report reaffirms the central role of journalism in a democratic society, but insists that everyone in the media, from journalists to managers and owners, must be accountable for the power they wield. It may be used as a day-to-day reference for those resolving ethical dilemmas and a resource for media lecturers and students, as well as a standard by which the public can measure media performance.show more
