Fidelity to the public interest is vital

Posted

The Challenge of CoronaTo the Editor:
In response to your article, I want to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for your reporting of a disturbing case that affects the whole community.
In this current culture, journalistic integrity has been replaced with sensationalized media for the purpose of sales. It is refreshing to have a trusted news source where integrity dares to rise above greed.
The media plays an integral part in the Constitution, by making the people aware of what is going on.
“Freedom from all obligations except that of fidelity to the public interest is vital.”
— Code of Ethics or Canons of Journalism, Appendix I.III, American Society of Newspaper Editors (1923)
My sincere thanks to the reporter and all the staff that stand at the front line of defense for our country (i.e.: the newspaper – the people’s police).
