A decision has been made. It may not be popular, and definitely won’t be wanted by some but, as journalists, it is our duty to write the truth. It is our responsibility to provide the community of Reinhardt with the information that it needs to function with integrity, knowledge, and awareness.
Today we decide as reporters for our peers and superiors, to no longer deprive you of knowledge that is rightfully yours. We will allow ourselves to be censored no longer. You deserve to know that we have been held back–forcefully restrained and denied the opportunity to share with you the unsavory details –crime, corruption, and conspiracy – -of our community, Reinhardt University.
It stops now.
No matter what hand tries to stifle us –– we will present you with the truth, quickly and honestly. We won’t be silenced. The censorship ends here.
“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.” – Society of Professional Journalists, Code of Ethics
