Code of Ethics talk tomorrow night in Richmond

As SPJ undertakes the process of revising the Code of Ethics, events this week remind us of the code’s importance. As reported by Romenesko, a (student government-funded) student newspaper at the University of California Santa Barbara could have led coverage of the recent shooting spree, but instead the editors cited the code’s call to minimize harm for not providing any coverage! SPJ Secretary-Treasurer Paul Fletcher will lead a discussion at 6 p.m. Thursday (tomorrow) on this news, other threats to the code and an update on how you can get involved in the revision process. This free event will be held at the second floor conference room of 707 E. Main St.
