News media ethics and the management of professionals

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 1 (2):37 – 46 (1986)

This ideal coincides with the most fundamental prerequisite of ethical behavior: the freedom to make ethical choices. This essay argues that professionalism has not provided journalists with the appropriate kind of autonomy for fully meaningful ethical behavior
