Georgia Lawmakers Introduce Bill To Create Ethics In Journalism Board and Standards To Hold Journalists Accountable For Their Reporting

Six Georgia state lawmakers think a set of ethical standards for journalists would be an excellent idea, and they've introduced a bill, "The Ethics in Journalism Act," to try to make it so.  Coverage from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution points out that the proposed standards would hold Georgia journalists to higher standards than the lawmakers themselves. Here's a link to the text of the bill, HB 734.

Coverage from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Columbia Journalism Review  and the Washington Post.
