  6. 6. Ethics in journalism<br />Ethics plays a major role in the profession of journalism. Reason being that their job is to provide news and views with the idealism of truth and thus morality is necessary for being an ethical journalist.<br />. A Journalist should be clear and straight forward with emphasis on duty, responsibility. He shouldn't take advantage of the development of media in a democratic society like ours and should behave in a certain manner as required by law and culture.<br />The primary objective of every professional journalist is to find and report the truth. Journalism ethics always demand honesty, fairness and courage in gathering, reporting, and interpreting accurate information. <br />It also requires journalists to remain free of associations and activities that might compromise journalists integrity or damage credibility. The basic philosophy of ethics should be concerned with truth, freedom of expression, objectivity, honesty of reporting, belief in fairness and the rule of privacy. <br />
  7. 7. Ethics is inseparable from journalism, the problem with ethics as a governor of the procession is that it can be used for control. <br />All governments try to censor and control media. Owners use press as a means of satisfying their own lust for power and wealth. Even consumers often try to censor the watchdogs of democracy and freedom by their complaints or pressures. <br />The discussions about journalism ethics are centred on serious matters: propaganda, sexism, racism, homophobia, personal unjustified attacks, deception, and betrayal of confidences and invasions of privacies. These are all matters of unethical and unacceptable conduct. They are swaying away from the primary purpose, which is of gathering and reporting news.<br />
