Ethics in all-news radio: Perceptions of news directors

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 5 (3):178 – 190 (1990)

Abstract

In order for a new code of behavior, such as the 1987 Code of Broadcast News Ethics of the Radio-Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) to work, member support and voluntary compliance is necessary. This study shows all-news radio news directors seem generally inclined to support the Code except in areas in which long-time journalistic conventions are involved.
