    The Media Ethics Code

    1. Write the facts as you see them
    2. A story without a source is a source of trouble
    3. A source is not a source when the story is based on rumour
    4. When in doubt, cut it out
    5. Prejudge no one
    6. Be objective
    7. Divorce comment from news and label it as such
    8. Commentators are not exempt from the duty to be accurate
    9. Never incite racial or religious division
    10. Enlighten, lest we fail to understand one another
