Here’s what the UW Center for Journalism Ethics says on the subject:
“News media now inhabit a radically pluralistic, global community where the impact of their reports can have far-reaching effects — good or bad. News reports, via satellite or the Internet, reach people around the world and influence the actions of governments, militaries, humanitarian agencies and warring ethnic groups.
A responsible global ethic is needed in a world where news media bring together a plurality of different religions, traditions and ethnic groups.”
Sounds a lot like E pluribus unum: “Out of many, one.”
