Journalists in Paraguay write "ethical manifesto"

After two years of meeting in workshops with journalists and communication students from several cities in Paraguay, the non-profit Topu’â Paraguay presented the "Ethical Manifesto for Journalists in Paraguay" with the purpose of "covering the need for principles that help build a more ethical and responsible journalism," informed the portal D Periodistas.

Fabricio Demestri, the project's coordinator, told Radio Ñandutí that the document consists of 30 articles based on traditional ethical principles but also includes topics like journalism in the age of the Internet.
