library ethics

Librarians have a strict ethical code and they take it seriously. As a former journalist I tried to follow similar principles, and many of my colleagues did as well. But I've never heard of or been taught an industry-wide suggested code of ethics for journalists, and I suspect that field might be doing better, in certain ways, had they adopted one. The most I got in grad school was one or two non-credit lectures, a dog and pony show, really, courtesy of Fred Friendly, and believe me, he was no George Clooney.
