James BoylanThe Elements of Journalism is a useful work. It offers a contemporary restatement of principles put forth by the Hutchins Commission more than fifty years ago of journalism's obligations to remain truthful, independent, open, and , not least, interesting. The final principle offered is that "practitioners must be allowed to exercise their personal conscience"- even, it is implied, in defiance of employers' policies. This is the freshest and most contrversial element in the discussion, and Kovach and Rosenstiel are to be commended for raising it, even as cautiously as they do.
