The journalist and privacy

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 9 (4):197 – 212 (1994)
Abstract
The moral right to privacy consists of the power to determine who may gain access to information about oneself. Individual human beings need some measure of privacy in order to develop a sense of self and to avoid manipulation by the state. Journalists who respect the privacy rights of those on whom they report should especially be careful not to intrude unduly when gathering information, in publishing they should be able to demonstrate a public need to know private information. Individual journalists should establish their own guidelines for reporting on the private lives of different categories of people in the news.
