Ethics in The News

Phil Harding, former controller of editorial policy at the BBC, raises questions about how journalistic ethics are taught.

Ethics in crash

"There is a fallacy that 'ethics' and 'journalism' are seldom mentioned together in the same sentence.

We here at The Advocate beg to differ. We strive to do what’s best for our readers, and ... we like to think we err on this side of caution."

Journal Sentinel reporter Mark Johnson honored with Anthony Shadid Award for Journalism Ethics.
