This week is Ethics Week for the Society of Professional Journalists.

This year’s theme is “Minimize Harm,” the SPJ’s ethics chair Andrew Seaman blogged.

“Ethics Week is a time to recognize journalists who seek truth and report it, minimize harm, act independently, and are accountable and transparent,” the SPJ’s website states.
