Ethics of journalism compel journalists and media houses to be objective, accurate and fairness in their reportage. Also, during electioneering processes all political parties need to be given equal attention and publicity without any tone of fear or favour. This is a cardinal principle that guides the operation of journalism world over.
Tuchman (1978:2) cited in Kate, A. O. and Majority, O. (2013) describes objectivity as
facility’ (a mechanism which allows the journalists to hide even from themselves theconstructed’ and
partial’ nature of their stories). This view seems to have garnered force as increasingly, scholars suggest that news even when professionallyselected’ is guided more by organizational needs than by professionalism.
In 2015 Presidential Election, the core ethical standards of journalism were eroded and traded in exchange for political benefits from concern political parties by some media organizations. Although, some serious minded media organization adhered strictly to the ethical principles of their profession in the face of growing abuse of journalistic etiquette.
