– Identify sources clearly. The public is entitled to as much information as possible to judge the reliability and motivations of sources.

– Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.

– Avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information unless traditional, open methods will not yield information vital to the public.
