Journalist Ethics

Did you know that Journalists have a Code of Ethics? And did you know that the first code is:
Test the accuracy of information from all sources and exercise care to avoid inadvertent error...
Neither did I. The list is fantastic, and reads like an indictment of current news practices. I especially like this one—
Give voice to the voiceless; official and unofficial sources of information can be equally valid.
Most of these could apply to weblog authors as well.
