ARE “JOURNALISTS” TODAY ADHERING TO THEIR OWN CODE OF ETHICS?
by Neil Turner
(Oct. 21, 2011) — Article II, Section 4 of our Constitution speaks of all sworn civil servants being removed from Office if found guilty of other ‘high’ Crimes. E.g. lying while under an Oath of Office – which would include everything they say publicly while ‘in office’ – is a ‘HIGH’ crime, committed while in ‘high (elected)’ Office.
By the same token, the Society of Professional Journalists have a Code of Ethics which they subscribe to, and violation of this code should lead to their banishment from the ‘Society’ and, one would think, removal from the ‘Profession’. Below are excerpts from that Code of Ethics:
(excerpted) The duty of the journalist is to further … public enlightenment as the forerunner of justice … by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues.
Seek Truth and Report It
Journalists should be honest, fair and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.
Ethical journalists treat sources, subjects and colleagues as human beings deserving of respect.
Journalists should be free of obligation to any interest other than the public’s right to know.
Journalists are accountable to their readers, listeners, viewers and each other.
Let us put this in perspective:
Considering the Conspiracy of Congress that has taken place to install a usurper in the Office of President, one could conclude that everything that every member of Congress has had to say concerning the ineligibility of Obama/Soetoro for the last 3 years is a bald-faced lie, better known Constitutionally as a ‘HIGH CRIME’.
And considering that Mr. Obama/Soetoro surely knows that he is ineligible and a usurper, never mind putting his name on a Kindergarten-level forgery of a ‘Certificate of Live Birth’ on 27 April, 2011, – one can easily conclude, without even being smarter than a 5th-grader, that he has committed numerous ‘HIGH CRIMES’ … plus TREASON!
And considering that the ‘Media’, being saturated with so-called ‘Professional Journalists’, has participated knowingly and willingly in this treasonous charade – in blatant violation of their own ‘Code of Ethics’ – then one can easily conclude the entire U.S. Media should put away their (i)pads and pencils and cameras and phones, hang their respective heads in shame, and shut down their entire treasonous circus as they leave this once great country that they have helped to bring to its knees.
We had a Woodward & Bernstein once, but their investigatory reporting is nowhere to be seen today. Must be that the devil’s got their tongues (and their pens and brains, too). The scandal of Watergate is child’s play compared to the greatest fraud ever perpetrated upon the American people in play today. Woodward & Bernstein … INDEED!
So it is now up to the Citizen patriots and reporters, with their Constitutional Code of Ethics, to do the job that the Congress and the Media (and the Judiciary) have failed to do. And we can start in earnest in Washington D.C. on 11.11.11:
