Brigham Young University journalism professor Joel Campbell called for journalism students to “have kind of a moral compass in what they do” during an October “lecture series,” the university’s student newspaper the Universe reported.

Likewise, communications professor John Hughes added to Campbell’s comments:

“I think it’s tremendously important because I think there is much in journalism that is very good, but there is much in journalism today that is very bad…The kind of ethics and principles that he was talking about are essential for the future of good journalism.”
