Internet bloggers and commentators constitute an increasingly important voice in journalism, but these mostly independent commentators have been unable to agree on a code of ethics governing how they should report on news events. Imagine that you have the opportunity to help construct such a code.

Review the four codes of ethics as a blueprint (.pdf file attached).

Decide which of the principles contained in the four codes would apply to bloggers, and how?

Are there ethical considerations inherent in blogging that you think are not covered by the four codes, in which case you will have to create new guidelines to fit those circumstances?

Create a new code of ethics based on your research.
