Ethics and Standards

Journalism ethics and standards comprise principles of good practice applicable to our network of writers and the specific challenges they face in their everyday reporting and newsgathering. While journalists in the United States and around the world adhere to a set of ethics and standards, such codes can vary from news organization to country.

Producing content that is accurate, fair and of the highest quality is the mission of The Media Project. We adhere to the set of ethics and standards put forth by the Society of Professional Journalists.
