Professional journalists should recognize that their first obligation is to the public.”

By constantly seeking the truth and reporting anything that is wrong we give the audience fairness. We give the sources and anyone involved in the story fairness. We need to seek the stories out with compassion and not be stereotypical in any way.

For visual journalists, they need to respect the pictures that they have taken. Again, try to be humble when dealing with subjects. Editing should maintain the integrity of the original photo. Journalists should treat the subjects with respect as well.

Some journalists standards are as follows:

-Accuracy

-Honesty

-Fairness

-Attribution

“If the quote comes from another news outlet, the journalist must credit it.”
