Journalists Must Not Scramble For Per Diem

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Journalism is a noble profession. A good journalist should disseminate the truth in good faith and in the public interest. This implies that journalists should not rely on the food and per diem provided by a host during coverage to the extent of protesting when it is not provided. A host is not obliged to provide anything to reporters, though they may do so either in good faith or in order to influence the reporter.

All reporters should take note.
