 * [http://www.netzwerkrecherche.de/projekte/index.php?pageid=6 10 points of German "Netzwerk Recherche"]. Netzwerk Recherche presents an idealistic set of ten commandments for journalism. While the codex defines "journalism" by certain professional standards it becomes obvious that there also must be "non-journalism" according to the definition. It can hardly be argued that "non-journalism" has no role and needed no standards. So the definition is not very helpful. Further the points lack empirical evidence or could even be considered empirically falsified.  * [[http://www.netzwerkrecherche.de/projekte/index.php?pageid=6|10 points of German "Netzwerk Recherche"]].

Lobby information and Transparency Advocacy

Official documents

Protection of journalists

  • Whistleblower protection still insufficient, in German e.g. §353b StGB as a risk
  • no journalism exemption in data retention directive -> should get rebalanced.

Media codex

  • 10 points of German "Netzwerk Recherche". Netzwerk Recherche presents an idealistic set of ten commandments for journalism. While the codex defines "journalism" by certain professional standards it becomes obvious that there also must be "non-journalism" according to the definition. It can hardly be argued that "non-journalism" has no role and needed no standards. So the definition is not very helpful. Further the points lack empirical evidence or could even be considered empirically falsified.

  • Journalisten berichten unabhängig, sorgfältig, umfassend und wahrhaftig. Sie achten die Menschenwürde und Persönlichkeitsrechte.
  • Journalisten recherchieren, gewichten und veröffentlichen nach dem Grundsatz „Sicherheit vor Schnelligkeit“.
  • Journalisten garantieren uneingeschränkten Informantenschutz als Voraussetzung für eine seriöse Berichterstattung.
  • Journalisten garantieren handwerklich saubere und ausführliche Recherche aller zur Verfügung stehenden Quellen.
  • Journalisten machen keine PR.
  • Journalisten verzichten auf jegliche Vorteilsnahme und Vergünstigung.
  • Journalisten unterscheiden erkennbar zwischen Fakten und Meinungen.
  • Journalisten verpflichten sich zur sorgfältigen Kontrolle ihrer Arbeit und, wenn nötig, umgehend zur Korrektur.
  • Journalisten ermöglichen und nutzen Fortbildung zur Qualitätsverbesserung ihrer Arbeit.
  • Journalisten erwarten bei der Umsetzung dieses Leitbildes die Unterstützung der in den Medienunternehmen Verantwortlichen. Wichtige Funktionen haben dabei Redaktions- und Beschwerdeausschüsse sowie Ombudsstellen und eine kritische Medienberichterstattung.
