June 11, 2015 at 6:10 PM (PT)
The RADIO TELEVISION DIGITAL NEWS ASSOCIATION (RTDNA) has adopted a revised Code of Ethics. The revisions, including recognitions of social media, native content, and other changes in news, are the first to the Code in 15 years and can be seen at rtdna.org.
Ethics Committee Chairman SCOTT LIBIN said, "The guiding principles of reporting truth, editorial independence, minimizing harm and accountability, articulated in the late 20th century by ethicist BOB STEELE, underlie the 2015 Code, too. We believe it deserves continual review and reflection to ensure that it remains relevant, current and essential."
