As newspaper readership declines and journalistic resources are depleted, new kinds of pressures on journalistic ethics are created. But this 2005 replication of a 1982 study of newspaper ethics shows that editors and staff members are holding on to their values. Editorial autonomy has improved, publisher infringement on news coverage has declined, and there is less influence from advertisers today. As journalism slowly migrates to new electronic platforms, this empirical study of current practices and values provides a benchmark against which future performance can be judged.
