Code of Ethics
I am not in the entertainment business.
Do onto others as I would want others to do onto me. - The Golden Rule.
Do not distort, hype, slant or falsify facts and quotes.
Do not work in a news company that does not author stories about its own advertisers. Work with a non-bias company.
Do not lighten how tragic something is. Example: school shootings, death of anyone, war.
Innocent until proven guilty.
Produce more facts than opinions. Leave yourself out of the article.
Assume there is another side or version of every story.
Assume the same about all people who I report on.
Personal lives are a private matter until a legitimate turn in the story mandates otherwise.
