Press self-regulation is both a good commercial decision as well as an ethical one in a world where success as a journalist can only come with trust. It is a crucial factor in establishing an online news organisation no matter how big or how small. Chris Elliott argues that 'not wrong for long' doesn't cut it any more.
Chris Elliott is the readers' editor at The Guardian. He was appointed The Guardian’s managing editor in February 2000. He was part of the Guardian’s team that won the UKPG Team Reporting Award for the Jonathan Aitken investigation.
Chris has worked as the home affairs correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph, chief reporter for the Sunday Correspondent, and assistant news editor for the Times. He is now chairman of the NCTJ’s accreditation board. He sits on the board of the Nomination Committee of the Reuters Founders Share Company, and is chair of Concern Worldwide UK as well as being a director of the Society of Editors.
This is the third of a series of talks from Ethical Journalism Network (EJN). EJN is a coalition of media professional groups aiming to strengthen the craft of journalism around the world.
