Follow-up assignment



  • Try to find out if there is a code of media ethics in your country. If there is, compare it to one of the press ethics codes listed under “web resources” below. Find similarities and differences.

  • Go to the website of one of the major newspapers in your country. Check out different sections of the website (travel, fashion, food & drink etc), and read a few stories. Do you know for sure if you are reading a piece of journalism or native advertising? How can you see the difference?
