Editors and spin doctors met on Wednesday, 28 March 2012, to debate the ethical state of South African journalism. The panel and high-profile audience were unanimous on one thing: we need a renewed focus on ethics in SA newsrooms. But just what's the problem and how can we address it?
...On debate's Wednesday instalment, Haffajee said it's cowardly of Vick to spread "skulduggery" suggesting the industry is corrupt without substantiating his claims. A debate ensued over whether he should name and shame those that bribe reporters, but Vick (@chrisvick3) said he had approached the journalists' editors with no result.
