When someone decides to be a Journalist ethics is the first thing he/she should always follow and it means to have integrity , accuracy, fairness and humaneness.A journalist should be successful in bringing the highest possible degree of accuracy and fairness to each story they do .Like many broader ethical systems, journalism ethics include the principle of “limitation of harm.”This often involves the withholding of certain details from reports such as the names of minor children, crime reports, victims of sexual abuse, etc. Integrity should be an essential element of any journalistic career from the very beginning till their entire career. News should be double checked and there should be a genuine authentication before publishing to ensure that the people read accurate news. A journalist should have a sense of fairness because fact is fact and to be fair is more difficult than being accurate. Hence media ethics and code of conduct is very important in journalism because it’s them who help people make a decision .Even if the reporter is unbiased there is a circumstance where he has to work in slanted news organizations. In many cases we have seen that some news channels publish entire details as it is and the others who withhold information, in Kerala there are TV channels and papers for particular political parties which openly criticize each other. It is always believed that journalist report what they observe without letting their opinions affecting the judgment but recently many reporters were found flouting these ethics specially in Malayalam news televisions where there were lot of one sided news stories especially the Solar Scam Case. Journalist in the name of investigative reporting , in many cases, are misusing their right when an private document is being made public the name of the victim should be protected at any cost, the journalist should report responsibly, should not spill all the beans just so that his news is in demand. In the recent Tehelka case the victims private mail to the company was leaked and made a public document. In case of sexual assault the media can name the culprits but here this victim’s detail was openly discussed. Media is being ruled by people with power and it is the clear with the content if a politician is accused in a rape case no such details comes out but if it’s a common man then the news organization rapes them off their privacy.
