The SPJ Code of Ethics touches on several specific areas, including the gathering and reporting of news, as well as ethical behavior when dealing with sources. In an era where the rise of “fake news” is eroding the public’s confidence in the media, it is more important than ever for legitimate journalists to be mindful of SPJ’s Code of Ethics, specifically, that they should “Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. Verify information before releasing it. Remember that neither speed nor format excuses inaccuracy.”

Bearing this in mind, what do you think is a journalist’s greatest responsibility in combating the prevalence of “fake news” and helping to restore the public’s trust in the American media?
