Journalist as source: The moral dilemma of news rescue

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 7 (4):233 – 245 (1992)
Abstract
Sometimes a news organization withholds information for reasons other than news judgment. But if one news agency will not publish certain information, does this prevent a staff member from making it possible for a different agency to publish the facts and thus rescue the story from secrecy? This study reveals that most journalists accept such news rescue incidents as part of the game, but raise ethical and legal concerns pitting news ownership against right to information.
