Code of Ethics
According to The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) Code of Practice for All Social Organisations was established on September 1995 by 8 social action organizations and 6 unions of journalists, while in January 1996, seventy-one journalists drafted a Code of Ethics for the Professional Exercise of Journalism.
An Agreement for the coverage of violence (Acuerdo para la Cobertura Informativa de la Violencia), signed by a group of Mexican news organizations, is close to being considered a code of ethics on how to cover the violence generated by organized crime.
Some media outlets have their own code of ethics. Here are some examples:
- Noticias MVS Reglas de Conducta Etica
- El Universal Código de ética (El Universal’s Code of Ethics)
- Código de ética periodística y política editorial de la Fundación Manuel Buendía
