Study on Journalism Ethics in a Digital Environment

  • Shyam Sundar Bhatia


Journalism is facing new ethical issues because of the emergence of the Internet and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).In this article, we inspect how editorial codes of morals have been refreshed to address this new reality. Three examination questions are investigated through a deliberate examination of 99 codes from around the globe. Results show that of the 99 codes broke down, just 9 incorporate references to the Internet and ICTs. We close with recommendations for changes in the codes that would help writers settle these new good issues.
