When i googled "journalism ethics" there was a wide variety of sites and information that came up. There was information from the Society of Professional Journalists, which we looked at in class and that basically says the same stuff that we read. It says that Journalists should seek the truth and report it, minimize harm, and be accountable. A wickipedia article said that the core of journalism ethics is truthfullness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability. This page also went into more detail about what each of these principles mean and why they are important. I also say a page about journalism ethics on the internet which I thought was very interesting. I think lots of people feel like they can put up whatever they want on the internet, but this site was saying that if you are really a journalist, and not just a person writting whatever they want, than you will follow a code of ethics like a print or broadcast journalist would.
There was a page by the New York Times that stated their official policy on journalism ethics. This went into a lot of detail about every aspect of a reporters job. There were rules for special departments in the paper, rules on how to act while on the job, how to act while off the job and how to best represent the company. It seemed to me that other ideas about journalism ethics were more abstract but this was a clear set of rules about what their journalists can and cannot do.
