  • Adam Penenberg's Journalism Ethics Handbook for Students
    In journalism, ethical problems -- with some obvious exceptions such as plagiarism and fabricating sources and material -- can rarely be solved with yes or no, do or don't answers. Whenever an ethical or legal issue arises, students should review this handbook, consult with a professor or both. The best defense against crossing ethical or legal lines is openness and honesty.
