Professionals of mass media like other professionals are governed by all the laws of the land. In the profession of mass media as in other professions, there is a sizeable area of activity which remains out of the domain of law and must be governed by a professional code of ethics or self-regulation. Various Codes of Ethics have been formulated from time to time to guide journalists and the mass media. It is not possible in the Code of ethics to detail all the probable incidents which could come up for discussion on ethical grounds. To formulate a comprehensive, rigid Code of ethics for a journalist is neither feasible nor prudent. Yet, some organizations have adopted Codes of Ethics.
