It is recognizing the Right Thing.
One has seen the Right Thing to do and has done it.

Media ethics is a set of principles and standards that we apply as part of a process to solve ethical dilemmas, particularly in the practice of journalism. Media ethics also involves critical analyses of media issues. New technology is shaping the way we communicate,which has prompted discussions about ethics across political and cultural borders and within new online communities.
What discussions should we have in the way Pacific nations and cultures practice media ethics? This website was created with the goal of launching that discussion.
See the Center for Journalism Ethics: Global Media Ethics for information on the global realm.
