Testing for ethics
NYT staffers now have to pass an ethics test that poses challenging questions such as: Who is responsible for protecting and maintaining the unique reputation of our Company? My question: Unique reputation for what?
The NY Observer, well, observes, that there are some glaring omissions: "They cover subjects including circulation padding (hint: itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wrong), bribery (also wrong) and insider trading (wrong, wrong, wrong) -- but not plagiarism, faking datelines from a Brooklyn apartment, or hiring a stringer to do your legwork."
Well, at least that answered my question. [LINK]
