New Ethics Guidelines at Los Angles Times?

Home » Standards»

The Los Angeles Times released an updated version of its ethics guidelines Feb. 1.   With the revised guidelines (see here), editor Russ Stanton included a note which stated that the guideline revisions are “the result of a thorough review by our Standards & Practices Committee.”

The last revision was in 2006, according to Stanton.  Updates to the guidelines incorporate “the fact that we are a multimedia operation,” Stanton explained.

Stanton recommended the newsroom staff pay attention to “particularly the passages on sources, corrections and clarifications, and our place in the community.”
