The French Press Lacks a Code of Ethics

The French press is an exception in Europe. Its code of ethics relies exclusively on the journalist’s individual judgment and is not regulated by a precise code of conduct that would apply to the entire profession. The professional charters date back to 1900, they have no constraining power and only very vaguely address the question of conflicts of interests. Yet, such conflicts are legion in the profession: journalists who get paid for various consulting and hosting jobs; ministers’ companions who keep their positions as political journalists; press trips. A national ethics authority is lacking in France. It is in the process of being set up.
