  •  Thanks for that in depth critique (0+ / 0-)

    You are correct the Code of Ethics is entirely voluntary....but this brings up a point which I was going to cover elsewhere...

    namely the claim of privilege journalists exercise when it comes to confidentiality.

    making that claim puts them on par with lawyers, doctors, and priests ... but without any of the sanctions those professions' members would endure if they violate their codes of ethics.

    Your point about gaming the system is very important.  However, I don't see how you rule out science reporters.  Seems like they would either be Journalists, Reporters, or Columnists
