News Corp.’s new weekly Sunday newspaper, the Sun on Sunday, launched Feb. 26 and announced a “commitment to high ethical standards,” the Guardian reported.
In a page 12 editorial, “A New Sun Rises Today,” the newspaper wrote:
“Our journalists must abide by the Press Complaints Commission’s editors code, the industry standard for ethical behaviour, and the News Corporation standards of business conduct. We will hold our journalists to the standards we expect of them. After all a newspaper which holds the powerful to account must do the same with itself. You will be able to trust our journalists to abide by the values of decency as they gather news.”
