"What is happening to quality journalism?" - Joanne White (@mediamum / TAFE NSW)
Traditional mass media fulfils an extremely important role in society. Journalists are held accountable by a Code of Ethics and various other legislation as it seeks to inform and stimulate society. Media business' move online has seen an erosion of the essence of the ethical responsibility of journalism. If left unchecked, this erosion risks the decay of our social fabric – an effect which far outweighs the priority of advertising dollars.

  • Delivering quality journalism to mass audiences in a new media environment
  •  
    • AJA CODE OF ETHICS
    • Respect for truth and the public's right to information are fundamental principles of journalism. Journalists describe society to itself. They convey information, ideas and opinions, a privileged role. They search, disclose, record, question, entertain, suggest and remember. They inform citizens and animate democracy. They give a practical form to freedom of expression. Many journalists work in private enterprise, but all have these public responsibilities. They scrutinise power, but also exercise it, and should be accountable. Accountability engenders trust. Without trust, journalists do not fulfil their public responsibilities. MEAA members engaged in journalism commit themselves to
    • Honesty
    • Fairness
    • Independence
    • Respect for the rights of others
